Greening Existing Buildings on College Campuses
Higher education is one of the leading sectors in sustainability thinking and implementation. We have been particularly interested in helping schools improve their overall performance by way of LEED certification for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (EBOM). The presentation above explores this concept in-depth, as a method of engaging college and university staff as well as their campus communities at large (best viewed in full-screen: press play and then hover over the More button to begin).
Frameworks such as AASHE STARS and initiatives like the Billion Dollar Green Challenge for financing energy efficiency upgrades have created many opportunities for schools to capitalize on the value of their sustainability efforts. evolveEA is helping schools maximize returns on these investments and ensure broad impact through strategic planning. Campus sustainability will increasingly become a priority for higher education institutions, advancing the field as a whole and continuing to enhance visibility for those leading the pack.
