Does the institution's physical campus plan include sustainability at a high level?:
A brief description of how the physical campus plan or amendment includes sustainability:
SUSTAINABLE SITE DESIGN (for Westchester Master Plan)
Additions and upgrades to the site features and elements on the Pleasantville campus will reflect Pace’s commitment to sustainability. Site measures will include landscape-based storm water strategies, use of native plant materials, pervious paving where feasible and appropriate, enhancement of watercourse and wetland areas and buffers, and full-cutoff light fixtures. Where feasible, sustainable site measures will be incorporated into the proposed buildings, such as vegetated green roofs on the relocated animal shelters that are part of the Environmental Center.
All proposed projects will be designed to meet or exceed a rating of Silver according to the U. S Green Building Council’s LEED program, an internationally recognized sustainable design rating system. Building materials and systems will be selected to minimize environmental impact and enhance energy performance. Landscape and site amenities will be designed to minimize the impact to the immediate environment.
