Go Green: LEED Green Associate

go green
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a set of standards for "green building" that specifies ways in which the design, construction, and use of a building can be less damaging and in some cases, even have a positive impact on the environment. Robert Maloney, project coordinator for Planning and Project Management at Rochester, is working to be the University’s LEED Green Associate.
