Description Northern Arizona University began some years ago on the road to sustainability. Numerous representative campus and community groups have served on campus sustainability and green building committees. President John Haeger set a goal that Northern Arizona University would be carbon neutral by the year 2020. Recognizing that this ambitious goal would require radically different thinking and direction a task force of the highly motivated, technically sophisticated, and politically astute members were appointed from the campus and community to drive this effort.
