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

The attached Executive Order No. 987, titled "Policy Statement on Energy Conservation, Sustainable Building Practices, and Physical Plant management for the California State University", delegates to each president, or his/her designee, the implementation of the California State University Board of Trustees' energy conservation, sustainable building practices, and physical plant management policy. This executive order reaffirms the need to conserve energy in order to achieve the system's goals.

This executive order retains general operational provisions and sustainable building practices while adding the CSU Sustainable Measurement Checklist process. It 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.

The goals are:

1) Reduce systemwide facility GHG emissions to 1990 levels or below by 2020.
2) Reduce systemwide facility GHG emissions to 80% below 1990 levels by 2040.
3) Increase self-generated energy capacity from 44 to 80 MW by 2020.
4) Exceed the State and CPUC Renewable Portfolio standard of 33% by 2020.
5) All future CSU new construction, remodeling, renovation and repair projects will be designed with consideration of optimum energy utilization, low life cycle operating costs, compliance with all applicable energy codes (enhanced Title 24 energy codes) and regulations.
6) The CSU shall design and build all new buildings and major renovations to meet or exceed the minimum requirements equivalent to LEED "Silver".

In accordance with the policy of the California State University, the campus president has the responsibility for implementing executive orders, where applicable, and for maintaining the campus repository and index for all executive orders.
