LEED Certified Projects

Making BU more sustainable from the ground up.

Boston University uses the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Certification System (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) to incorporate sustainable design and practices in all aspects of construction projects, whether renovations or new buildings—transportation, site selection, water efficiency, energy efficiency, waste reduction, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. To date, Boston University has 25 LEED-certified projects, totaling over 1.8 million square feet.

All new projects are designed to meet LEED Gold standards and Architecture 2030 standards for energy use intensity by building type. Read the New Buildings section of BU's Climate Action Plan.
