We are a thriving, growing campus—one look at our master plan will tell you that. All that development is a great thing, but it needs to be tempered by the needs of our environment.
We can grow as a campus and care for the environment by building responsibly, by using green procedures and materials that also conserve energy, and by preserving campus green spaces and planting trees and other foliage. What is the Carbon Footprint for IUPUI? See our 2009 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory Report.
Solar Panels have been installed on the roof of the Business/SPEA building, a "first step" for the campus in the generation of electricity from a renewable energy source.
The Eugene and Marilyn Glick Eye Institute is the first building on an Indiana University campus to achieve LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
Our goals for IUPUI's built environment include:
Every year, the campus spends millions of dollars to heat, cool, and power its 5+ million square feet of space. You have the power to decrease IUPUI's energy consumption. Whether you shut off lights or put your computer in standby mode, small changes can add up to make a difference.
Be part of the solution—Campus Facility Services' energy management department will show you how.
