Vermont schools join push to go ‘carbon neutral’

Print More

Some Vermont colleges are among those that have signed up for a national campaign to move their campuses toward being carbon-neutral.

The effort is aimed at reducing emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that are blamed for global climate change.

The University of Vermont, Middlebury College and Green Mountain College are among the schools taking steps to reduce or offset their carbon emissions.

At Middlebury, plans are under way to convert half the campus heating system from number-six heating oil to gassified wood.
