Monday the Roanoke City Council acknowledged the Clean and Green Business Coalition for achieving a 33% energy reduction over the past 5 years. Virginia Western has been part of this organization from its inception and contributed significantly to this statistic. Virginia Western engages in many sustainable best practices. Most recently all lights throughout campus were changed from 32W bulbs to 25W bulbs of equal lumen output reducing energy consumption. The virtualization of office and classroom computers has also made a significant contribution to conservation. VWCC will continue to seek opportunities for greater sustainability.
