Reduction: Environmental Sustainability 

  • Custodial Services uses accurate chemical dilution systems to measure out the exact amount of cleaning product. Iowa State mixes in-house with on-site water, reducing emission costs from the transport of cleaning products.
  • Due to increasing awareness of sustainability issues at Iowa State, Transportation Services recently switched to bulk delivery and storage of all fluids, including fuel, oil, antifreeze and washer fluid, to eliminate the unnecessary waste of plastic and metal containers, as well as to reduce the number of deliveries, fuel usage and emissions.
