The International School Of The Peninsula Goes Carbon Neutral, Profitably

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The International School of the Peninsula has renewed its commitment to environmental responsibility by working with Carbon Lighthouse to become carbon neutral. The school, which achieved Energy Star Certification last fall and earned the Mayor of Palo Alto's inaugural Green Business Leader Award, has now completed a package of energy efficiency upgrades that will reduce its energy use by an additional 12.5%. The remainder of the campus's carbon footprint will be offset through the retirement of carbon allowances through the Carbon Lighthouse Association. The project will reduce operating costs for the school, earning them a 19% IRR.

"Part of the International School of the Peninsula's mission is to help our students develop an international consciousness, which includes a strong sense of global responsibility in all of its forms," said Head of School Philippe Dietz. "We are committed to teaching by example – making our facilities eco-friendly and educating our students and employees on the importance of eco-responsibilities."

The International School of the Peninsula joins several schools that have worked with Carbon Lighthouse to complete energy efficiency projects and become Carbon Neutral. "Our project at the International School is a perfect example of local leadership. We are proud to have worked with such a great school, and are happy to be able to provide them with an attractive financial return," said Emma Bassein, Director of Impact for Carbon Lighthouse.

The International School of the Peninsula has two age-appropriate Palo Alto, CA campuses.
