Description

Clemson University’s Construction Science and Management Department conducted a research survey that evaluates the social, economic, and environmental aspects of green construction. The research aims to identify the primary factors driving the ‘greening’ of University facilities. To accomplish the objective of this study they asked key personnel of the nation’s top Universities to provide feedback regarding their institution’s approach and philosophy.  At the University of Illinois, the survey was completed by Helen Coleman, the Director of Capital Programs at Urbana.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign signed a Climate Commitment in 2008 to be carbon neutral by the year 2050.  We have a detailed action plan guiding our steps toward this goal, with specific interim targets for energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, and emissions reduction.  The campus strategic plan includes the goal to be a living learning laboratory for sustainability projects, where the faculty and students can work with the administration and facilities staff to do education, research, and outreach using the campus facilities.  The numerous efforts underway are listed online at http://icap.sustainability.illinois.edu.
