Greening the Bottom Line: The Trend Toward Green Revolving Funds on Campus.

Web Abstract: 
Reports on a survey conducted about green revolving funds (GRFs) in higher education. Research for the report took place between November 2009 and January 2011 and includes data from 52 universities in 25 U.S. states and 2 Canadian provinces. Details how GRFs help cut operating expenses and greenhouse gas emissions at 52 schools. Funds surveyed range in size from $5,000 at the College of Wooster to $12 million at Harvard University, with an average size of $1.4 million. The breakthrough in this approach is how cost savings are used to replenish the fund for investment in the next round of green upgrades.
