Texas Christian University is taking preliminary measures to address issues pertaining to sustainable development, particularly in the fields of green building and energy conservation. However, there is not yet a formal policy addressing sustainability nor is there a sustainability coordinator at the University.
Since 1996, the University has pursued an aggressive energy conservation and retrofit program, spending in excess of $30 million to replace all chilled water production systems with high efficiency units; to install variable speed drive in all distribution pumping systems; and to retrofit lighting on the entire campus with energy efficient lamps, electronic ballasts, and motion sensors, among other initiatives. However, the University has not made any attempt to purchase or utilize renewable sources of energy.
The grounds crew composts yard waste, and although no official recycling program exists, a moderate amount of recycling takes place with approximately 75 percent of the eligible campus waste stream being recycled.
Although the University has no formal written policy, efforts are made to design new buildings and major retrofits for LEED certification. The most recent new building currently under design, a 145,000 square foot university union, will be registered for LEED certification. Additionally, the University has four LEED-certified engineers and architects.
The University has no known policy of disclosure of endowment holdings or its shareholder voting record.
The University prioritizes investing to maximize profit and has not made any public statements about investigating or investing in renewable energy funds or community development loan funds.
The University has not made any public statements about active ownership or a proxy voting policy.
