Archived Webinar: Using LEED as a Framework for Existing Facilities on Campus
In partnership with U.S. Green Building Council
July 26th, 2012 | 2pm EST
Over 75% of ACUPCC signatories have committed to adopting the tangible action item to “Establish a policy that all new campus construction will be built to at least the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver standard or equivalent.” Colleges and universities have made great strides in integrating green building practices into campus planning, design and construction efforts as seen by the 4800+ registered and certified higher education LEED projects. But the big question remains - what about the remaining 99% of campus infrastructure?
The webinar will discuss how LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance can be utilized as a framework for integrating sustainable practices into your daily business operations in an effort to gain efficiencies, build capacity and save money. Signatory institutions Western Michigan University and the University of California, San Diego will discuss how the rating system is being used to create programs that enhance existing campus facilities while also tying efforts to the curriculum.
