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

Swarthmore uses a building management system to monitor and schedule HVAC and lighting loads to reduce our energy loads to an absolute minimum and provide valuable feedback for trouble shooting equipment in the field. Currently we monitor 24,000 points with more points being added every year. Additionally, all buildings receive regular preventative maintenance on HVAC/Mechanical Systems. The Environmental Services Department is also committed to using Green Seal Certified products and metered dispensing systems to minimize product waste
