LEED Certification:

LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) is a green building certification program that recognizes sustainable building strategies and practices. To receive LEED certification, building projects must satisfy prerequisites and earn points to achieve different levels of certification: Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum. The ambition for the UC School of Business is to achieve LEED Silver or higher.

The new Lindner College of Business has four major focus areas:

  • Reduce environmental impact
  • Improve energy performance
  • Enhance greenspaces and trees
  • Water management

The four focus areas are defined and specified on the basis of UC´s overall sustainable vision and climate action plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and eventually become carbon neutral, to reduce storm water runoff and to provide a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for the University community. UC strives for effective and meaningful solutions that can be directly linked to the sustainable corporate identity of the university.
