A brief description of the green building guidelines or policies and/or a list or sample of buildings covered:

CI follows the 2010 California Green Building Standards Code (CAL Green), requiring all new buildings reduce water consumption, employ building commissioning to increase building system efficiencies, divert construction waste from landfills, and install low pollutant emitting finish materials. CAL Green’s mandatory measures establish a minimum for green construction practices, and incorporate environmentally responsible buildings into the everyday fabric of California cities without significantly driving up construction costs in a slow economy.


A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with green building design and construction guidelines and policies:

California State University Channel Islands (CI) follows the CSU Office of the Chancellor's Executive Order Number 987, which encourages campuses to continue to adopt an integrated design approach that includes sustainable materials and practices. It also requires new goals for energy conservation, and the purchase and generation of renewable power.
