As we plan to replace and renovate many of our major facilities, we are focusing on Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification standards. These new buildings will lead the way in site and materials conservation, water conservation, energy efficiency and conservation, and improved air quality. Nearly $37 million is projected to be invested in erecting these green buildings.
Currently, 26 percent of Campus Dining’s vehicle fleet runs on electricity. As we add new vehicles, their fuel efficiency is a major criteria. We will also examine alternative modes of transportation, like bicycles for deliveries.
