Presidents Climate Commitment

Carteret County Crossroads

NC Coastal Federation

Carteret Local Food Network











The Sustainability Committee formed on campus involves staff, faculty and students who seek to meet the goals of the Climate Commitment Challenge by measuring our current baseline greenhouse gas emissions and reducing them by 2% per year. Carteret Community College joined the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) which provides wonderful teaching materials regarding sustainability issues and links you with other campuses.

The Green Initiative Fund

A fund with the college foundation began with an initial “Polar Plunge” fundraiser in January 2008. We are also selling all recycled Aluminum on campus as an ongoing source of income. We are working with our Board to purchase a solar water heater for the McGee building on campus.

The third annual POLAR Plunge fund raiser for the solar water heater will be held on Wednesday, January 27, at 12:30 PM, with folks gathering in the Student Center before plunging into Bogue Sound in front of the CMAST Building.

Sustainability Awareness Month

Every January is Sustainability Awareness Month. It coincides with a national “Focus the Nation” effort on college campuses to educate across the curricula about climate change.
