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

Emory University uses LEED O+M as the primary green building certification system for operations and maintenance. Goizueta Business School is LEED O+M Gold certified.

Emory also developed its own internal operations and maintenance program. The award-winning Sustainable Performance Program (SPP) is an ongoing commissioning program that was implemented to protect Emory’s investment of new construction commissioning and existing building retro-commissioning. The SPP utilizes processes intended to sustain and continuously improve the system performance and energy usage of a facility over time. 28 buildings are part of the SPP as of 2019, totaling 4.2 million square feet.
