In general, buildings are known to be responsible for an enormous amount of global energy use, resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. Green Building Council's LEED® certification system is the foremost program for the design, construction and operation of green buildings.
LEED certification provides independent verification of a building's green features allowing for the design, construction, operations and maintenance of resource-efficient, high-performing, healthy, cost-effective buildings.
Some of the benefits offered by a LEED certified building include lower operating costs, waste reduction, water conservation, greenhouse gas emission reduction and a healthier, cleaner indoor environmental quality, which means health benefits for occupants.
Fayetteville State University's new constructions and major renovations always aim at a minimum a LEED Silver certification. These initiatives clearly show the commitment and leadership as a sustainability-focused organization.
