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.

*Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are chemicals released while the paint is in either a soild or liquid state. Through evaporation these chemicals polute the air and can have adverse health effects on organisms which come in contact with them. Low VOC paint contains levels of VOC which are considerable healthier than other paints.
