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

In 2003 UCB students decided to fund construction of four major campus buildings ( Wolf Law, ATLAS, VAC and Business School). Student main funding condition was to ensure these buildings were designed and met the LEED silver level certification with up to 1% of of total project cost in support of sustainable features. We have been able to achieve LEED Gold level certification for all new constructions. Currently LEED Gold+ is our campus standard. Gold+ is intended to drive deeper into the two main LEED categories; Energy and Water.
