Sustainability

Green Space, Buildings, and Stormwater Management

This work group identifies and implements sustainability standards into the construction and renovation of facilities and grounds on the CSU campus, to insure the endurance of University owned properties. The development of sustainability standards should follow, but is not limited to, the United States Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Environmental & Energy Design) rating systems, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education STARS framework, and overall sustainable practices where applicable.

We are identifying different rating systems, standards, and practices that are most suitable for campus developments and incorporating their use early on in master planning and project planning phases. We are also identifying best management practices for storm water management on the CSU campus.
