UNH Greenhouse Receives MPS-ABC Sustainability CertificationSource: MPS

The Macfarlane Greenhouse Facility, located on the University of New Hampshire campus, recently received MPS-ABC sustainability certification.

The Macfarlane Greenhouse Facility, located on the University of New Hampshire campus, recently received MPS-ABC sustainability certification. The 25,000-square-foot greenhouse is focused on research and teaching. It reportedly is the first research greenhouse to join the MPS-ABC sustainability certification program. MPS is adjusting its evaluation criteria for the university, since it is not a commercial enterprise. MPS evaluates energy, water, fertilizer and crop protection agent usage and waste management to designate a scorecard-based certification. Almost a year into the certification process, the Macfarlane Greenhouse Facility is currently recognized as an MPS Participant. After a full year of participation, they will be given a score based on verification of its weekly reporting. “Not only is MPS evaluating us quarterly, separate companies associated with MPS will send auditors in on an annual basis to give us extraordinary insight into what improvements can be made for us to become an even more sustainable facility,” said David Goudreault, manager of the Macfarlane Greenhouse Facility.
