Mt. San Antonio College is the first AGZA Green Zone® Community College in the Nation

On a beautiful fall Southern California day November 2nd, 2023, Mt. SAC College became the first "Community College" AGZA Certified Green Zone campus. Their AGZA Green Zone rating is Level 2, which means all 2 - Stroke and 4 - Stroke landscape maintenance equipment has been phased out and only battery electric alternatives are now used.

AGZA President Dan Mabe was on hand to acknowledge the college on their monumental achievement. “This is the culmination of a two-year effort with classroom sessions, field tutorials, tools testing, and data collection. AGZA is confident Mt. SAC is up to the challenge to maintain the AGZA Green Zone standard in perpetuity” said Mabe.

An ELF® (Environmental Landscape Footprint) report was generated to understand on a granular level the impact reductions the college is achieving each year. AGZA Green Zone Certification® substantiates the reductions through independent verification of gas free operations.

Mt. SAC College was also recognized for their extensive "Water Wise" practices by reducing campus turf sizes, planting drought tolerant and native varieties, and using rotator sprinkler heads.
