A Milwaukee company has chosen Youngstown State University as Ohio’s top Earth Day champion for its energy efficiency and renewable-energy projects.

“Organizations across Ohio are making significant environmental improvements while attacking energy waste, reducing operational costs and creating strong financial paybacks,” David M. Peters, regional vice president of Johnson Controls Building Efficiency, said in a news release. “Earth Day is the perfect time to recognize these commitments to sustainability and remind others that building- efficiency creates a better environmental and fiscal future for the Buckeye state.”

Monday was Earth Day.

YSU tops the list with its annual reduction of 10,723 metric tons of carbon pollution. In 2005, YSU had a comprehensive building-efficiency retrofit to more than 40 buildings, including the use of building automation, mechanical and lighting-system updates, and hands-on student engagement in the project through an energy-performance contract with Johnson Controls.

The Southern Ohio Correctional Facility in Lucasville, the cities of Lakewood and Parma and the Cuyahoga County Board of Development Disabilities rounded out Ohio’s top five.

The university is fourth on Johnson Control’s list of Top Earth Day Champions in Education.
