What is Conservation? Animals Habitats Resources
What is Sustainability? “,,, able to be maintained” The capacity to endure The ability to provide for the needs of the present without detracting from the ability to serve the needs of the future Sound business practice, corporate social responsibility
What’s the Deal? What are we doing and why? Reducing energy, resource, and water consumption Increasing use of alternative energy sources, increase diversion from the landfill Board approved policy statement - 2008 Board-level Carbon Neutral/Zero Waste Task Force - 2010
Sustainability Policy Recognizing its impact on all stakeholders, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will develop a world class sustainability program leading to the meaningful reduction of its carbon footprint.- Adopted by the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium Executive and Appointed Board, December 2008
What happens at home? 580 acres of land Over 10,000 individual animals in our care More than 1.9 million guests visited in 2012
Waste Reduction • Reuse old wetsuits as protective gear for animal handling • Reuse celery and/or grocery bags as well as the rubber bands that hold broccoli bunches together • Deliver food to animal areas in reusable containers • Use barrels and trashcans rather than trash bags to collect soiled bedding • Put up dry erase boards for checklists and communication • Save handles to broken tools so they can be reused with new heads.
Waste Recycling 2012 816 tons manure, bedding material and food waste 126.73 tons of baled corrugated (21 tons in 2010) 5.21 tons of paper (Abitibi) 7.46 tons of mixed metal 11.22 tons of co-mingled recyclables (8.81 tons in 2011) Cell phones recycled (183 in 2011) Over 5,000 light bulbs – fluorescent, metal halide, U-tubes,,, 21.5 tons electronics –Public drop off event
Energy Conservation Is it driven by money or mission?
WildLights at the Zoo Converted 3 million traditional holiday lights to LED bulbs 85% reduction in electricity 2-year effort Major support by American Electric Power
Warehouse Lighting The lighting system was upgraded to more energy efficient lights Active daylighting system was installed (fancy skylights) The daylighting system is integrated with the lighting system
Warehouse Lighting The lights are connected to occupancy sensors The Zoo has seen a savings of $11,000 per year on its electric bill The estimated ROI on this project was 2.4 years
Flux Drive Installations Frictionless coupling of motor and pump using magnet technology Design life of 20 years
Flux Drive Installations No throttling; all valves are wide open Provides variable speed control to reduce flow as required Saves energy & money* No harmonics Reduced noise and vibration* Straightforward in design, easy to operate & understand Designed to operate in harsh environments *documented at the CZA
Polar Frontier Theming Reuse Rethinking Plantings
Polar Frontier Geothermal System provides geothermal heating and cooling to 3 buildings, including the Battelle Ice Bear Outpost Heats and cools the water for all bear pools Geothermal system eliminated need for traditional air-cooled chillers, gas-fired boilers and heating units Zoo water tower serves as heat sink and heat source
Life Support System Controls • LSS Control changes at Manatee Coast and Polar Frontier • Touch screen controls on Zoo-wide network, remote log-in • Staffing efficiency • Programming changes for optimal operations efficiency
Energy Savings Program Active Energy Savings Program for years: Lighting Ciralight active skylights Fluxdrives Building Controls
Recycling 270 new sets of combined recycling/trash containers are now on-grounds The project was funded in part by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention
