Green Buildings

As a leader in sustainable education, Concordia has endeavoured to formalise its commitment to environmentally responsible development by seeking green building certifications for its most recently constructed buildings.

What is LEED?

To obtain LEED (or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, Concordia must incorporate a considerable number of features and processes that improve the building’s overall sustainability and environmental impact. Examples of these features include:

  • Bike and electric vehicle parking
  • Energy efficiency that exceeds building code standards by wide margins
  • Use of on-site renewable energy sources
  • Advanced commissioning and start-up of all building systems
  • Responsible disposal of construction waste
  • Fixtures and equipment that limit water use
  • Use of renewable and socially responsible building materials and construction practices
