Daemen Wins Sustainability Award for Environmentally-Friendly Efforts

Daemen College has been presented a Certificate of Recognition for Outstanding Environmental Stewardship from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) New York Upstate Chapter in honor of its campus-wide green initiatives.

Daemen President Gary A. Olson accepted the award on behalf of the college from Aliesa Adelman, who serves on the chapter’s board of directors, at a presentation held April 22 in the college’s Research and Information Commons. Also in attendance was Dr. Brenda Young, chair of the global and local sustainability program at Daemen.

“This honor underscores Daemen’s steadfast dedication and support of campus sustainability and green initiatives that are important to improving our environment,” said Olson. “We are proud of the culture of sustainability that exists at Daemen and excited to have the collaborative efforts of our faculty, staff and students recognized by the USGBC.”
