Look for these signs

 Low Emission Sign

As part of our commitment to U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Colby has installed "Low Emissions Vehicle" parking signs on campus. These spaces are reserved for vehicles that meet or exceed emission standards as low-emitting vehicles (LEV) set by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The LEV parking spaces are provided to encourage the use of high efficiency vehicles, which have a lower impact on the environment. LEVs include hybrid and non-hybrid models. To find out if a vehicle is classified as a low-emitting vehicle, click here to view the 2013 list of certified low-emitting vehicles.
