Green Office buildings

Our Plan

Comprehensive Green Building Standards ensure that we are constructing and renovating our buildings to be as efficient and healthy as possible.

Our Progress

Harvard has more LEED certified green building projects than any other higher education institution in the world, according to the US Green Building Council.

Our buildings are where we live, work, learn and conduct life-saving, groundbreaking research. They are also where we consume an enormous amount of energy—heating and cooling alone accounts for 40% of our greenhouse gas emissions.

Harvard’s comprehensive, university-wide Green Building Standards ensure that all sustainable design and operations opportunities are vetted and that environmental targets are achieved in a cost-effective manner.

In addition, we have institutionalized sustainability and energy efficiency into established university practices including capital planning and construction. Under the leadership of the Executive Vice President, Harvard Planning and Project Management, and Office for Sustainability, energy conservation measures and greenhouse gas reduction planning is now integrated into the University's 5-year capital planning process.

Tools and Resources

University-wide tools and resources have been created to help Harvard Schools and administrative departments meet the GHG Reduction Goal and Green Building Standards. Many of these resources were developed as part of a community-driven, collaborative process in which representatives from across the University had the opportunity to create, review and revise the tools:

  • Green Revolving Fund: Provides a no-interest source of capital for high performance campus design, operations, maintenance and occupant behavior projects that generate clear environmental impact reductions. Loans are repaid based on the anticipated annual savings with a maximum payback of 11 years.
  • Life Cycle Cost Policy that provides clear financial and GHG reduction metrics to ensure long-term financial impacts are included in decision-making and capital planning. It includes a Life Cycle Cost Calculator designed to aid project managers in considering all present and future costs.
  • Green Building Resource website that provides LEED case studies and other sample documentation to assist project managers.
  • The Green Building Services team within Harvard Campus Services Energy and Facilities, supports University Schools and units in efforts to design, build, and operate their buildings more sustainably.
