On October 27, the Loudoun Campus was recognized as a participant in the Loudoun County Green Business Challenge at the 2011 Loudoun Green Gala. In order to participate in the Loudoun County Green Business Challenge, employees of the Loudoun Campus completed the Green Challenge scorecard. The scorecard allowed participants to report the environmentally friendly operational practices that are observed at their institution.
The Loudoun Green Team, a student run club, hosted a bike-to-school day to help promote green practices within the student body. This activity added valuable points to Loudoun’s Green Challenge scorecard.
The Loudoun Green Business Challenge was developed in partnership with the Loudoun County Governmsent and the Chamber of Commerce.
