A Thought Leadership Initiative for
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) have collaborated with Kyoto Publishing to create the second edition of the “Climate Neutral Campus Report,” a published thought leadership report and companion website. Kyoto Publishing plans to distribute 15,000 copies to decision makers and influencers within the U.S. higher education system.
This edition’s focus is on Green Building Campus Leadership and stakeholder groups including students, faculty, administration and facilities. The Report will be divided into four sections, one for each stakeholder group, and will contain white papers and case studies that present perspectives on green building and sustainability issues from each of the stakeholder groups to show how these groups and individuals are engaging in campus activity in new and innovative ways.

What Do We Know About Our Audience?
In January of 2010 we conducted a poll amongst Educational Institutions. Here’s a top line review of the key headlines:
- 95% of respondents confirmed their educational institution invested in technologies and services to reduce greenhouse emissions in 2009.
- 27% of respondents said that the driving factor behind investing in sustainable solutions was a ‘desire to do the right thing’… 24% said the driving factor was ‘saving money.’
Of those that planned on investing in 2010, 16% planned to invest in ‘Recycling and Waste Management’ and an additional 16% planned to invest in ‘Energy Efficiency & Management.’
- 55% of respondents confirmed they are at the early stages of their process and were either ‘articulating their sustainability commitment’ or ‘defining their sustainability plan.’
- And finally, when asked which channels respondents look at to help aid their sustainability purchasing decisions, the most popular channels were ‘publications’ and ‘Whitepapers’ – each with 16% of the vote.
