The building sector contributes forty percent of carbon emissions globally. Given the climate crisis, it is imperative that campus facilities and planning departments address sustainability in a rigorous and fiscally responsible way. This session will explore Princeton University’s campus master plan, which engages an ethos of sustainability through the lens of carbon emissions, landscape design, energy, and water efficiency, from design through construction. Find out how you can apply Princeton's ambitious sustainability goals and lessons learned to your master plan and sustainably develop your projects for the benefit of your campus environment and community.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Focus sustainability efforts in the built environment on major drivers of climate change.
  2. Apply lessons learned to inform your integrated design planning process and prioritize sustainability measures under evaluation.
  3. Identify campus-specific methods of creating a culture of sustainability.
  4. Discuss how to enact market-level change in building product procurement.
