Here at the UMass Lowell, buildings on campus host classes, dining, study sessions, club meetings, and much more. During our busy days, we may forget that our usage of buildings on campus requires electricity, heating, periodic repairs, and new construction projects.

As such, we aim to make all four of these aspects of building operations as sustainable as possible! See how UMass Lowell has been able to achieve LEED-Certification for several buildings on campus, in the video above.

LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certified) buildings save money, improve efficiency, lower carbon emissions and create healthier places for people. They are critical to addressing climate change and meeting ESG goals, enhancing resilience, and supporting more equitable communities.

To achieve LEED certification, a project earns points by adhering to prerequisites and credits that address carbon, energy, water, waste, transportation, materials, health and indoor environmental quality. Projects go through a verification and review process by GBCI (Green Business Certification Incorporated) and are awarded points that correspond to a level of LEED certification: Certified (40-49 points), Silver (50-59 points), Gold (60-79 points) and Platinum (80+ points).
