A brief description of the sustainable operations and maintenance policy/program and/or O+M rating system(s) used:

On October 29, 2019, Governor Roy Cooper signed Executive Order No. 80 establishing new targets for GHG emissions reductions throughout North Carolina. One of the order's specific actions directs a 40% reduction in energy consumption (per square foot) at state-owned buildings by the end of fiscal year 2025 from the baseline in FY 2003. As such, ECU continues to pursue equipment upgrades, retrofits, and conversions, while also ensuring the campus is operated as efficiently as possible. This will include such actions as continuing to establish and maintain building operating schedules and defining optimal building operating parameters for energy intensive locations, such as research labs. These efforts, combined with continued campus community education and involvement, will continue to allow ECU to move closer to targeted reductions.
