A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

As a part of EKU's Sustainable Building Guidelines, EKU requires that:

• All new construction and major renovation building projects for the amount of $5 million or more in budget shall be designed, built, and submitted for certification to achieve a rating of Silver or higher using the LEED V4 - New Construction Project Scorecard.

• All new construction or major renovation projects for the amount of $600,000 - $5 million shall be designed, built, and submitted for review by a member of EKU’s Capital Construction & Project Administration (CCPA) team involved with the project to achieve the rating of Certified or higher using the LEED V4 - New Construction Project Scorecard.

A part of this process involves diverting construction waste from landfill in both the demolition and construction phases.
