Green Fridays is an annual Delta College summer initiative to reduce our campus carbon footprint by keeping energy and the emission of pollutants to their lowest possible levels, without decreasing the level of education and services provided.
Delta College will be closed on Fridays from May 14 through July 27 and will have extended hours Monday through Thursday to continue the same level of service to students.
Delta piloted Green Fridays in 2008 as a green campus initiative to save electricity, water consumption and other resources after conducting an extensive inventory to determine our carbon footprint – a measure of the amount of greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels for electricity, heating and transportation. In addition to utilities consumption, a major factor for this initiative is the emissions resulting from regular commutes to and from the institution by students and employees.
