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

Pursuant to Kentucky law, KRS 56.770-784 and the administrative regulations, 200 KAR 6:070 High Performance Building Standards, construction and major renovation projects at UofL must adhere to green building criteria in the design and construction of such projects.

This criteria is based on the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System for New Construction and Major Renovation 2009 standards, as adopted by the U.S. Green Building Council.

The LEED standard required varies depending on budgeted project size. For renovation projects where the budget exceeds half the insured value of the building being renovated, such projects are to be considered "major renovation."
