Mizzou, a leader in sustainability

MU gave an update Monday on its 2014 Campus Master Plan & Climate Action Plan in Stotler Lounge. In previous years, the master plan and sustainability plan were updated separately. They were combined this year. 

Since the last update in March 2013, MU has completed construction on seven buildings. It has 10 building projects in planning. MU has three buildings certified LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design: Missouri Orthopaedic Institute, the Animal Resource Center and the MU Health Care Patient Tower.

Furthermore, eight LEED buildings are under construction, and other building renovation projects when complete will seek LEED certification. “MU has made a deliberate decision to integrate its sustainability goals with building renovation and open space improvements,” said Linda Eastley of Sasaki Associates, a development firm that consults with MU on building and landscape development.”
