Green Building and Renovation

Bentley's Green Building Commitment

In the Climate Action Plan, Bentley University has committed to achieving LEED-Silver certification for all new construction and major renovations (renovations greater than 50% replacement value).  In addition, Facilities Management and the Office of Sustainability work together on smaller upgrades and renovations across the campus to ensure that green building principles are being applied.
