WMU Best Green School

1/2 | Past Projects

Western Michigan University’s sustainability journey began in the 1990’s when the school eliminated the use of coal and implemented recycling. Over the past two decades, the school community has collectively served as a leader in sustainability through energy conservation and renewable energy implementation efforts, recycling and waste reduction programs. WMU also facilitates cooperative research into green manufacturing practices. With 20 buildings on campus that are either certified or registered, the University’s commitment to LEED is one of the highest in Michigan. In 2015, the school aims to establish a LEED Lab program on campus. The school has been recognized in Princeton Review’s Guide to 322 Green Colleges. Additionally, the Sustainable Endowments Institute recognizes WMU as one of 80 national campus sustainability leaders and a Michigan Green Leader by the Detroit Free Press.
