Out of the top 25 football schools, the University of Notre Dame ranked for No. 11 for our green efforts! SaveOnEnergy.com, one of the longest-standing online energy comparison websites, compared the Associated Press’ Top 25 preseason list to see how the universities stack up in their sustainability efforts.
In order to properly rank the universities, the team examined each school’s stadium sustainability efforts, campus green initiatives, environmental studies programs, number of active green organizations, waste diversion rate and amount spent on locally grown and organic food. Each category was weighted based on how significant they were.
