The Maricopa Community Colleges will launch a year-long paper reduction campaign with a goal of cutting paper use by 10 percent. The campaign, which began on Oct. 26, is just one of many the district and its 10 colleges are conducting to support sustainability. The organization is estimated to use roughly 620,000 pounds of paper a year in its various activities. This accumulates to approximately 113,000 reams of paper stacked about three-and-a-half miles high.

The MCC district formally committed to sustainability in Feb. 17, 2010. Faculty and staff take into account environmental responsibility, social justice, and equity and economic viability. The district's governing board also passed a resolution affirming its commitment to sustainability in December 2008.

As part of the district's commitment, sustainability efforts have been developed across the organization, some of which include trip reduction efforts, recycled waste programs, and a pilot program aimed at measuring sustainability outcomes - Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS) at two colleges.
