A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with sustainable building operation and maintenance guidelines and policies:

It is the intent of the University of Alaska Fairbanks Facilities Services that all buildings on campus are operated and maintained in such a way that the health of the building occupants and the environment are protected. In doing this Facilities Services takes into account sustainable operations and maintenance with a particular interest on the impacts to the surrounding sites, energy consumption, usage of environmentally preferable materials, indoor environmental quality, and water consumption.

Where practical, Facilities Services will adopt and implement practices that are designed to address sustainability in all areas of operations and maintenance. The practicality of these practices may be determined from an in-house and informal cost/benefit analysis for individual locations on campus.
