Portfolio & Campus-Wide Waste Audits.
Schools, Colleges & Universities
Blue Planet has performed Waste Audits, and Waste Characterization Studies for many educational facilities and campuses throughout North America. As a supporting member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and our intimate knowledge of the AASHE's Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS), as well as other independent programs, such as Re-Trac, we are uniquely positioned to deliver targeted data relative to our client's campus-wide solid waste and recycling metrics and reporting needs.
Blue Planet performs full audit of all solid waste and recycling, including 100% of all solid waste and recycling generated during the audit period for all the Audit Buildings. In addition, our independent and totally objective position affords us the ability to deliver quantifiable, real-time, data for the entire waste stream and not just a small percentage or partial sampling of the Audit Buidling's waste stream.
Academic campuses throughout North America are experiencing a new urgency to find the most prudent use of their financial resources and new ways to align them with their environmental directives. Our systematic approach is based on best practices derived from our work with other academic campuses, as well as a wide cross-section of the businesses and industries Blue Planet serves.
