Civil Engineering Building LEED Certified Gold
90% of UMD’s emissions come from heating and powering campus buildings. Energy efficient buildings are key to attaining goals outlined in UMD’s Energy Action Plan, including a 25% reduction in emissions from 2007 levels by 2020, and operating a carbon neutral campus by 2050.
To measure and ensure that new buildings are built and operated to conserve energy, water, and other resources, UMD uses green building rating systems, including B3 Guidelines and LEED-certification. While constructing efficient buildings is important, the majority of greenhouse gas emissions come from the operation of a building during its lifespan. Upgrading and maintaining existing buildings for efficiency is critical to lowering campus emissions.
