The Green Lights Hall of Fame will induct Butler University and the Center for Urban Ecology (CUE) on Thursday in a ceremony at the Christian Theological Seminary.

The Green Lights honor is presented to individuals and organizations who lead the way when it comes to the promotion of sustainability across Indiana. Amassed by Sustainable Indiana 2016 for its Bicentennial celebration, the awards are a series of climate solutions.

Butler President James Danko will be honored for signing the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment in 2012. Butler will take the necessary steps to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

“The presentation of two Green Light Awards to Butler University is evidence of our leadership in pushing the boundaries of sustainability in Indianapolis,” CUE Director Julia Angstmann said. “The Center for Urban Ecology is proud to be part of a statewide effort to leave behind a positive environmental legacy for future generations.”

Cue will be inducted in the Hall of Fame for its dedication to the study, practice and education of sustainable solutions for urban environments, which includes CUE Farm, urban wildlife research and its program called Make Change Indy.
