AASHE Campus Sustainability Data Collector and the STARS Reporting Tool

Earlier in 2012, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) launched a portal for colleges and universities to report their data. AASHE launched its Campus Sustainability Data Collector to collect information for The Princeton Review Green Rating, Sierra magazine’s Cool Schools issue, and the Sustainable Endowment Institute’s College Sustainability Report Card. The information uploaded to the data collector will not be available to the public The tool is essentially a simplified version of AASHE’s Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). The data collector also includes some data points which the ranking organizations are interested in but that are not included in STARS.

The STARS reporting tool allows institutions to both share and track their data over time through data management software. STARS also offers automated calculations, multiple user access, and data collection resources. STARS participation costs $900 for AASHE members and $1400 for non-members.
