In 2013, Fort Lewis College undertook campus-wide environmental sustainability and energy efficiency upgrades. The overhaul included water conservation measures, more energy efficient lighting, and better building insulation, to name just a few areas of improvement.

The upgrades not only saved the College money in utility and maintenance costs, it also made a major impact on FLC’s consumption of energy and natural resources, thereby impacting its carbon footprint.
