The University of Utah strives to provide a sustainable built environment for its students, employees and visitors. All new buildings are required to achieve Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) -Silver and 40% better than code energy performance. The State of Utah mandates energy efficiency in all state-owned buildings There are currently three LEED certified buildings on campus and another eleven awaiting certification from the United States Green Building Council.
Aside from using resources efficiently, the University seeks to use buildings as an educational tool for the students in a continued effort to recognize the campus as a living laboratory for sustainability in action.
LEED-Silver is a requirement on campus for all projects greater than $2.5 million. As new buildings get constructed and older ones get renovated, green buildings are becoming the norm across campus.
