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

Humber has integrated the following sustainable practices and planning principles into our Technical Standards for new construction:
1. Develop campus buildings and infrastructure to achieve energy efficiency in a systematic fashion. Make all new institutional buildings at least 30% more energy-efficient on average than national standard.
2. Create flexible multi-use spaces in the design of new and renovated space to accommodate changing needs and functions over time.
3. Maximize natural daylight to reduce energy use such as creating work spaces near windows, corridors in the middle of buildings and incorporate skylights when possible. We integrate daylight sensors into our lighting systems to further maximize daylight.
4. Reuse existing furniture for new projects/ renovations. Retired furniture that is still in working order is donated to charity or sold to Humber community members.
5. Preserve and retrofit existing buildings to support current use and future growth.
6. Design campus buildings with green spaces, minimizing the use of current green space for new development.
7. Preserve mature trees
8. Design new buildings to minimize the use of water
9. Reduce construction waste to landfill
