Part 2

Applicability

This credit applies to all institutions. 


Scoring

Each part of the credit is scored separately.

Part 1

Institutions earn 0.5 points for meeting the criteria outlined above. Partial points are not available for Part 1.

Part 2

Institutions earn the maximum of 0.5 points available for Part 2 for having or participating in a program to responsibly recycle, reuse, and/or refurbish electronic waste generated by both the institution and its students. Partial points are available. For example, an institution whose program includes recycling, reusing, and/or refurbishing electronic waste generated by the institution or its students, but not by both, would earn 0.25 points (half of the points available for Part 2).
