2002 Additions to WWC’s 1998 Statement of
Environmental Goals as approved by Staff Forum
- Warren Wilson College (WWC) will demonstrate its strong commitment to environmental responsibility through the Campus Greening Initiative.
- WWC is committed to utilizing a fully implemented Environmental Management System (EMS) that takes into account the College's previous environmental commitments, and that enables staff, faculty and students to establish environmental goals, monitor progress and achieve continued performance. Through the use of the EMS, WWC will identify and measure the College's environmental impact, insure compliance with environmental regulations, initiate an environmental improvement plan that consists of short-term tasks and long-term goals, and expect WWC staff, faculty, volunteers and students to take ownership and responsibility for implementation.
- The EMS will assure that WWC's Campus Greening Initiative is feasible, measurable and continually improved.
