Catawba upped its institutional commitment to sustainability recently by agreeing to create a green revolving fund that will loan money to finance on-campus investments in clean energy and efficiency projects. With this commitment, Catawba joins 41 other institutions, mainly colleges and universities, in the U.S. and Canada that are part of the Billion Dollar Green Challenge.Through The Challenge, the Sustainable Endowments Institute is advocating for institutions to create green revolving funds (GRFs), an energy-efficiency financing tool that was found to have annual return on investments averaging 32% in the 2011 Greening The Bottom Line report. GRFs capture the savings from lower utility bills, using that money to reinvest in more energy-efficiency projects, continuing the cycle of energy savings.
