The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has created iWARM (individual WARM) to help consumers understand the energy saved by recycling small quantities of common household products, rather than landfilling them. iWARM provides the relative energy savings from recycling rather than landfilling. The energy savings are translated into the equivalent amount of electricity, estimating how long that amount of electricity will operate a variety of household appliances.
Consistent with the KCTCS Vision to be the nation’s premier community and technical college system, KCTCS is becoming a leader in practices, educational and workforce training opportunities, and community leadership related to sustainable development or sustainability. The most commonly accepted definition of sustainable development is found in the 1987 United Nations’ Our Common Future: Report of the World Commission on Environment and Development (also known as the "Brundtland Report"): "Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Sustainability is more than “being green.” Multifaceted, sustainability touches every area of a college. Facilitating cultural change to enhance the well-being of people, sustainability includes improving efficiencies and effectiveness in a socially equitable manner. Implementing sustainable practices demonstrates responsible stewardship of social, economic, and environmental resources. KCTCS sustainability focus is on being “Green+”.
