CCGT Update
As you have read in previous emails, the Chicago Center for Green Technology has been struggling with funding for the past couple years, and the full Green Tech U (GTU) fall semester was on hold while the future of the program was being determined.

Recently, it was decided that the Green Tech U program, as well as the Chicago Center for Green Technology, will be closing at the end of October. While the building tenants will still be here, CCGT will be closed to the public after this Friday, Oct. 31st.

It has been our pleasure to serve you over these past 12 years! We have enjoyed giving tours, answering your questions, teaching you how to green your lifestyle and business, hosting your meetings, and so much more. We are grateful for all of the support you've given over the years.

We would like to extend an extra big thank you to all of the volunteers and interns that have worked at CCGT through the years! Thank you for all of the time, talent, and work you put in here. You taught us a lot and we hope you learned a lot as well.

Thank you for helping to make our city a greener, better place to live. Please keep up the good work!

CCGT is Double Platinum Certified!
Mayor Emanuel announced that the Chicago Center for Green Technology has achieved the highest level of building certification from the U.S. Green Building Council - LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance under v. 3.0.

This is the second Platinum LEED certification for the building. In 2003, CCGT was awarded the same under LEED for New Construction v. 1.0.
