Lehigh can positively impact the campus environment as well as the surrounding community by managing relevant aspects of institutional operations. Below are some highlights of our efforts within Operations.

- Two buildings are certified under the green building rating system, one with LEED Gold for existing building, gained after its renovation, and one with LEED Gold for new construction, using USGBC rating system.

- Reduced energy use per sq ft by 5.58% over 2007 baseline.

- 49.21% of materials were diverted from landfill or incinerator.

- 75.7% of students (undergraduate and graduate) used more sustainable commuting options as their primary means of transportation.
