Data reported for projects completed within the last five years (Fiscal Years 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019).

Emory holds the distinction of having one of the largest inventories by square footage of LEED-certified building space among campuses in America and has been a pioneer in the green building movement in higher education. In 2000, Emory’s Whitehead Biomedical Research Building became the first LEED-certified building in the Southeast, and the Goizueta Business School became the first Gold-certified LEED-EB (LEED for Existing Buildings) in the entire country in 2005. In 2017 Emory certified its first hospital building under LEED, and in 2019 Emory's first LEED Platinum project was certified. Since 2005 Emory has certified 37 buildings and more than 3.7 million gsf under the LEED program.
