Capitol College has demonstrated its commitment to environmental management by becoming a part of the Maryland Green Registry. The college has supported the state in moving toward a sustainable Maryland by:
Forming an Environmental Committee to develop college-wide activities and establish an institutional plan and goals to expand our green promise.
Printing on paper containing 50% recycled content, including 15% post consumer waste.
Participating in AbiBow Recycling's Paper Retriever Program.
Participating in community environmental projects, like the Gorgeous Prince George's Day Tree Planting.
Communicating electronically via our monthly e-newsletter, the Capitol Connector, and making our college catalog available online.
The addition of Cambridge Architectural mesh on the exterior of the building perfectly matches the high-tech nature of the facility. A sleek sheet of metal fabric adorns the front of the building, lending a futuristic feel to its facade while making it environmentally friendly. The mesh shades the sun and reduces light pollution in the main and second story lobby of the Academic Center.
The Cambridge Solucent system optimizes energy performance and manages daylight flowing into the building. Not to mention, the mesh is readily recyclable and manufactured from recycled materials.
