Busibricks brings LiFE to Universities and Colleges

One of the first projects Busibricks was used in was as the foundation for LiFE, Learning in Future Environments a self assesment tool developed for the EAUC (Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges).

The LiFE Index is a comprehensive performance improvement system developed specifically to help institutions manage, measure, improve and promote social responsibility and sustainability performance.

The LiFE Index is "a tool designed for the sector, by the sector, has benefits for the institution ... you take which benefits you want but also a tool that you can shape and grow."
