UT to be recognized for green-energy effort


Dr. Anne Baker, the Toledo Zoo’s executive director, and Robert Buchanan, president and chief executive officer of Polar Bears International, will present the University of Toledo with a Paw of Approval award for its commitment to green energy at 10:30 a.m. today.

Dr. Lloyd Jacobs, UT president, will accept the award at a ceremony in the university’s West Solar Array in the Scott Park Campus of Energy & Innovation.

The award recognizes leadership in spreading a stewardship ethic that helps enact change, and allows zoos and aquariums to foster relationships with green local businesses. A previous local recipient of the award was the Olander Park System.
