On Thursday, Heifer participated in the Little Rock Sustainability Summit next door to our headquarters at the Clinton Presidential Library. Our Director of Facilities, Erik Swindle, spoke on a panel and discussed all of the steps that Heifer takes at HQ and globally to stay a sustainable organization.
Heifer HQ is a platinum LEED rated building that was not only built out of recyclable materials, but also has restored wetlands. To reduce our energy consumption, we've recently installed solar panels that help produce 8-10% of our total electricity that we use on campus.
