Green Buildings

As part of our commitment to becoming a low-carbon campus, Western is looking to embed sustainable design as part of any new construction or major renovation on campus.

The use of external certification programs, such as LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), not only helps showcase our commitment to sustainable buildings, but also complies with internationally-recognized standards and performance measurements.

LEED certified buildings create a better indoor environment for occupants, have high quality insulation and air quality, and consume less energy and water than traditional buildings. These outcomes are aligned with Western's long-term sustainability goals and help create a greener campus.

Below you will find a list of buildings that have achieved certification under LEED®. Learn more about the features of these green buildings on a Green Campus Tour!
