Campus Sustainability Plan

Facilities Services believes the campus sustainability program is an integral part of social responsibility.  The benefits of a campus sustainability program are:

  1. We will strive to use key resources like energy, water, materials, and land much more efficiently than buildings simply built to meet the codes.
  2. We will strive to create healthier work, learning, and living environments by providing more natural light and cleaner air, and using environmental friendly chemicals.
  3. We will strive to improve employee and student health, comfort, and productivity.
  4. We will strive to save money by reducing operations and maintenance costs, as well as lowering utility bills.

 Facilities Services has developed programs to conserve resources such as water, electricity and natural gas.  Operation activities routinely generate materials for donation and recycling, provide stewardship by proper management of chemicals and hazardous wastes, and use energy and water efficiently.  We are always seeking to improve our practices.
