Roadmap to a Green Campus provides strategies for using the LEED green building certification program as a framework for developing and evolving campus-wide sustainability plans.

LEED provides a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green campus solutions. The Roadmap references more than 100 tools and resources to support campus greening efforts, profiles institutional success stories, and offers guidance to help institutions of higher education:

  • Commit to a Green Campus
  • Assess the Landscape
  • Chart the Course
  • Lay the Groundwork
  • Build Capacity through Education and Training
  • Design, Construct and Operate Green Buildings
  • Engage the Campus Community
  • Use the Campus as a Living Laboratory
  • Celebrate Success

With Gratitude
