WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Propane Education & Research Council announces its new membership in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, an association of colleges and universities working to create a more sustainable world. Through membership in AASHE, PERC will inform higher education institutions on the benefits of using clean, low-emission propane equipment as part of their sustainability initiatives.
AASHE enables colleges and universities to meet their sustainability goals by providing specialized resources, professional development and a network for sharing information. Many AASHE resources are free to the public, and its programs help support the American College & University Presidents' Climate Commitment. ACUPCC institutions sign a commitment promising to lead their institutions toward climate neutrality. There are over 650 ACUPCC signatories and over 800 AASHE members to-date.
Through its AASHE membership, PERC plans to help campuses identify opportunities to convert gasoline- or diesel-fueled equipment to propane, including lawn mowers, vehicles, buses and generators.
