Sign up for the monthly Green Building Tip!

As part of Harvard's commitment to sustainability, the Green Building Tip aims to educate not only building managers, but the entire Harvard community about different "green" technologies, practices, materials and opportunities utilized in one or more buildings owned by Harvard.

Sharing individual lessons learned on a University-wide scale can help further efforts to sustainably design, build, renovate and operate Harvard buildings, which ultimately reduces operating costs and Greenhouse Gas Emissions while increasing occupant health, comfort and building performance.
