Facilities Management (FM) leads and participates in a number of sustainability programs and initiatives in support of its guiding principle, “Provide and support a safe, sustainable environment.” Sustainability has been integrated into every department of FM, specifically the Department of Building & Landscape Maintenance, the Department of Operations, Maintenance & Utilities, and the Department of Planning and Construction. Facilities Management manages the campus recycling and composting programs, stormwater management initiatives, campus rain gardens and green roofs, renewable energy projects, the campus arboretum, green cleaning procedures, and the planning and permitting for LEED certified buildings. FM staff work closely with staff in the Office of Sustainability, Residential Facilities, Resident Life, and other campus organizations to ensure our sustainability efforts are in line with the University’s Climate Action Plan.
