Many universities around the world have sustainable building plans, which aim to reduce their environmental impact and promote sustainable infrastructure on campus. Universities have implemented various sustainable building practices, such as using renewable energy sources, implementing green roofs, promoting water conservation, and utilizing energy-efficient building designs and materials.
Currently, 163 Institutions of Higher Education are members of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), a non-profit organization that was founded in 1993 with the goal of promoting sustainability in the built environment. The USGBC is best known for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program, which provides a framework for designing, constructing, and operating green buildings.
LEED is a third-party certification system that evaluates a building’s environmental performance based on categories such as energy use, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, materials selection, and waste management. The USGBC offers various levels of LEED certification, ranging from Certified to Platinum, depending on the building’s level of sustainability. Many universities have undertaken LEED-certified building projects, which aim to reduce environmental impact, Improve indoor environmental quality, and save energy and water.
Examples of LEED-certified university projects include:
The time and resources required to obtain LEED certification can vary depending on the size and complexity of the building, as well as the chosen LEED rating system. However, the process can result in a more energy-efficient and sustainable building that can reduce environmental impact and save on energy and water costs. Certification can bring several benefits to universities:
In addition to LEED, the USGBC offers a range of programs, resources, and educational opportunities aimed at promoting sustainable building practices, advancing innovation in the built environment, and fostering collaboration between professionals and organizations in the industry. The USGBC is one of the leading organizations in the field of green building, and its programs and initiatives have helped to drive sustainability in the built environment both in the U.S. and globally.
Santa Monica College’s satellite Malibu campus is just days from opening. The 25,000-square-foot modern structure sits on a three-acre parcel in the heart of the Malibu Civic Center overlooking Legacy Park.
The construction, which took a little more than four years, was built with sustainability standards and is LEED certified. Its systems are water and energy efficient, using passive air ventilation and a circulation system controlled by window louvers. There’s a green roof, storm water retention basin, and drought-tolerant landscaping. The campus includes two classrooms, an art studio, computer lab, and lecture hall. There’s even a lactation room. A multi-purpose room abuts the building’s wing housing the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s substation. The flexible space can double as an Emergency Operations Center.
“This building has an innovative design,” said SMC Malibu Associate Dean Alice Meyering. “It’s kind of open on the top so it encourages people to move around. In that way it kind of fits the area of Malibu.”
An extensive tile mosaic inside the building’s entrance she commented “honors its Malibu location” and vicinity to the beach.
The $65 million project was funded by two voter-supported measures: Measure S was passed in 2004 and Measure V was passed in 2016. The school bonds are funded solely by Santa Monica and Malibu property owners, although, as the Santa Monica Daily Press reported in 2016, only 4 percent of enrollees came from Santa Monica or Malibu high schools, and indeed, the SMC website itself indicates that 14 percent of students are not even from California.
SMC Malibu classes can be for credit, non-credit, emeritus, and community education students. Emeritus, non-credited classes, which are geared to older adults and fee-based community education classes are long-running programs through the college. For years, SMC offered classes at Webster Elementary School to accommodate local residents.
“That’s one of the desires why we feel an educational facility would be great in Malibu because for many years we had a limited space,” Meyering said. “We could only use it at night. This way you have a dedicated campus to learning and community engagement that’s specific for that purpose. We be accessible to everyone.”
Classes will run weekdays day and night. The spring semester starts Feb. 13.
“Anyone who’s interested in taking a class here at the Malibu campus will have the opportunity,” Meyering said.
Offerings include enrichment classes such as barre fusion exercise, architecture appreciation, and vocal yoga, offered mid-days. Emeritus classes scheduled include writing, current events, acting, painting, and drawing.
One hundred and fifty students are currently enrolled for the spring semester, but the dean expects that number to grow.
“This is a new campus,” she said. “We have a lot of unknowns. Once we get going we’ll have a better idea of what classes would be. Students are still enrolling. We want to accommodate as many people who want to be here. We want to satisfy the demand. There’s a desire to provide what the City of Malibu and Malibu residents want to take place here.”
Of the 30 classes available, Statistics has proved popular, with a second section added to accommodate another 45 students.
“We’re looking to add more classes and sections as they fill up,” Meyering said.
Film appreciation and public speaking are other classes beginning to fill according to the dean.
And where are the students commuting from?
“We think they are going to be coming from Santa Monica,” Meyering said. “We hope that people in Malibu will want to use this campus as much as they can. We can probably expect people from the surrounding communities.”
Meyering said SMC is still analyzing how many enrollees are from Malibu: “We have to gain access to the student data.”
When asked if classes will be available to MHS students, Meyering emphatically answered, “Of course.” She indicated there was a dual enrollment agreement and SMC will listen to student needs.
“We’re trying to reach out,” she said.
The new administrator and staff say they will try to accommodate the needs of MHS students, “their preferences…whatever they’d like us to provide for them, we’re partners in that effort.
“We hope many of our students will be from Malibu. This is a site that’s built in Malibu for Malibu,” Meyering said. “That’s always been the goal that people would take full advantage of this site. We can use the space for community outreach.”
SMC Malibu is already trying to build a relationship with the Malibu Library to possibly expand its popular Speaker’s Series.
“This could be a space where people come together,” Meyering stated.
“We feel very honored to be serving this campus,” Meyering concluded. “We’re looking forward to welcoming our first group of students. We want to make this a beautiful experience for everyone who comes through our door and to create a great opportunity for learning and connecting.”

PORT ANGELES — A latest $50,000 grant awarded by First Fed Foundation to Field Arts & Events Hall is earmarked for energy-efficient construction upgrades.
The grant awarded last fall, coupled with a $50,000 grant in 2020, underwrites the full cost for Field Hall to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification.
“First Fed Foundation is delighted to support Field Hall, which promises to be an economic engine for the region, a cornerstone for the revitalization of Port Angeles’s waterfront, and a cultural and educational resource for the community,” said Jan Simon, Foundation executive director.
”That our funding makes it possible for Field Hall to achieve LEED Gold Certification and serve as an environmental steward, makes our giving even more gratifying,” Simon said.
The grant was the largest of the nine First Fed Foundation grants made to organizations on the North Olympic Peninsula that totaled $145,000.
Other recipients were Clallam County Fire Protection District 4, Feiro Marine Life Center, Financial Beginnings Washington, Lutheran Community Services Northwest, Kitsap Sexual Assault Center — which provides emergency assistance in both Kitsap and Jefferson counties, Trinity United Methodist Church, Clallam-Jefferson Pro Bono Lawyers and New Image.
The LEED program represents efforts by a coalition led by the US Green Building Council (USGBC) to establish a nationwide standard for constructing “green” buildings that use sustainable design, construction, and operations.
“LEED-certified buildings like Field Hall not only work to reduce carbon emissions, conserve energy, save water, and eliminate waste. They can also have a profound impact on people’s health,” according to Chris Fidler, Field Hall’s project director.
”For example, research indicates improving indoor air quality can lead to an increase in worker productivity and a reduction of lost time linked to respiratory issues, depression, or stress,” Fidler said.
”Studies also indicate many people working in or visiting green buildings report feeling healthier and more personally productive.”
The design for Field Arts & Events Hall has earned a Gold Certification.
Obtaining LEED certification requires compliance with a minimum number of criteria affecting aspects of a project from site selection to the recycled content of building materials. Projects earn points for LEED criteria they fulfill; those that earn more points are awarded a higher certification.
Once complete, Field Hall will offer a 500-seat theater, waterfront and mountain-view conference and event spaces, an art gallery and a café.
“The building marks the start of a major renovation of the Port Angeles downtown waterfront and the first of three buildings dedicated to the arts, sciences, and cultural studies known as the Port Angeles Waterfront Center,” said Steve Raider-Ginsburg, executive director.
Field Hall will celebrate its grand opening weekend July 29-30.

Chittagong-based KDS IDR received platinum certificate from the USGBC for the Leed O+M: Existing Buildings 4.1 rating system with a score of 84
Bangladesh further solidified its position as a global industry leader in safe and environmentally friendly readymade garment (RMG) manufacturing units with the US Green Building Council's (USGBC) approval of another new production unit for leadership in energy and environmental design (Leed) certification.
On February 1, Chittagong-based KDS IDR Ltd received a platinum certificate from the USGBC for the Leed O+M: Existing Buildings 4.1 rating system with a score of 84.
So far, 187 factories in the country's garment industry presently have the Leed certification, according to the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA).
Moreover, four factory units have already achieved Leed certification in 2023.
In 2023, a total of 30 factory units received Leed certification, the highest in a year.
Currently, the RMG sector of Bangladesh has consolidated its position in green manufacturing units with 63 in the platinum category, 110 in gold, 10 in silver and another 4 Leed-certified factory buildings.
An additional 550 factories are either registered or in the pipeline for USGBC's Leed certification, reported the apex body of the apparel sector.
Among top 100 green factory units, 50 are from Bangladesh and among top 10, 8 are from Bangladesh, BGMEA official said.
On top of the obvious safety and environmental benefits, these green factories help significantly reduce operational costs over time even though they may initially cost more to set up, according to industry insiders.
As factory owners are required to adhere to specific criteria for the construction of the buildings, these factories also provide a safe working environment for employees.
Experts said that Bangladesh's garment industry is now poised to take the lead globally by addressing mounting issues of sustainability, climate change, groundwater depletion and efficiency.
The growing number of green apparel factories will supply Bangladesh a vantage ground to cope with EU green deals and due diligence directives stated by both the experts and the businesses.
Talking to Dhaka Tribune, Mohiuddin Rubel, director of BGMEA, said that as the entrepreneurs understood the need of green factories long ago, the result of which is this revolution in the green sector.
“Sustainable and green factories are the future. It is a matter of pride that 50 of the top 100 factories are in Bangladesh which is the result of the efforts of the entrepreneurs, government, and banks,” he added.
The future apparel industry is really value based, whoever can add more value will be ahead of their competitors and the green factories are undoubtedly a great addition.
“Moreover, the green factories also express the responsibility towards the environment and future generations,” he added.
In terms of value addition and competitiveness, green factories will always keep Bangladesh ahead of its major competitors, he said.
According to apparel manufacturers, the move towards green factory buildings helped regain Bangladesh's image after the Rana Plaza tragedy, which claimed 1,134 lives and left more than 2,000 injured in 2013.
