As Sustainability Program Manager, Kristen Hansen will present on behalf of the UC San Diego Sustainability Resource Center tomorrow at Sustainable Solutions, an event that will bring innovators in sustainable practices together to share their unique solutions for making long-term sustainability a reality.
Through her work with the Sustainability Resource Center, Kristen coordinates, tracks, and analyzes campus sustainability programs. She conducted research and analysis for the UC San Diego Climate Action Plan update and provided life cycle cost analysis and cost benefit reports on sustainable products and services. Kristen continues to serve as sustainability liaison to the UC San Diego campus and the community, as well as to other organizations including the University of California system and the ACUPCC.
The UC San Diego Sustainability Resource Center leads the student, faculty, and interorganizational collective initiative known as “Sustainability 2.0.” The purpose of Sustainability 2.0 is to bring together individuals and organizations in a united effort to translate key research discoveries into new possibilities and sustainable realities. With a daily population of over 45,000 faculty, staff, students, and affiliates, UC San Diego is as large and complex as a city, making it the perfect “Living Laboratory” to transform research ideas into real solutions within a working community. Sustainability 2.0 initiatives include: Clean Energy, Climate, Education, Food, Fuel Alternatives, Green Building, Transportation Alternatives, Waste Diversion, and Water.
Kristen will speak about UC San Diego’s greatest accomplishments in sustainability as well as current and upcoming green initiatives at Sustainable Solutions, held November 14th on campus in the brand new, LEED Certified, Structural and Materials Engineering building. Sustainable Solutions is the second collaboration between the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce and UCSD’s Jacobs School of Engineering. The event is open to community members, business owners, and students.
