CC’s Electric Car Program Featured on Brazilian TV

CC’s sustainability efforts received international coverage! Last month, CC was featured in a miniseries about electric cars on TV Brasil. The video includes several shots of the CC campus, specifically our electric car charging station near the corner of Cache and Nevada. (The CC footage begins around 2:37 in the video).

In case you’re a bit rusty on your Portuguese, the reporter discusses CC’s initiative to install a second electric charging station after a 25% increase in demand over the past year. She interviews CC Director of Sustainability Ian Johnson, who advocates for the combination of consumer initiatives, like our charging station, coupled with college policies that make sustainable energy accessible and fun for users.

It is great to receive this international attention for what we are doing to support sustainability, a central tenant of our Building on the Block strategic plan and a key part of  our Campus Master Plan.
