To carry out this promise, the University is committed to building and renovating healthier, less wasteful, energy efficient buildings in which to learn, work, and live. Discover current and future LEED buildings and read the Integrated Energy Master Plan.
Committed to energy conservation and efficiency
The Energy Challenge is an annual competion between buildings to save electricity and water, by encouraging Hoosiers to make small behavior changes for sustainable impact. Winners are chosen and resources are saved-- all over campus!
IU is a leader the Big Ten in LEED green buildings with 23 built to LEED standards to date, including 13 at the gold level. This strategy pays dividends for the life of each building in terms of occupant health and productivity, resource efficiency, life cycle cost savings, and retention of human capital.
How Can YOU Sustain IU?
