The built environment contributes over 80% of the University of Cincinnati's greenhouse gas emissions. This fact, led the University of Cincinnati to examine ways the environmental and economic impacts of campus buildings could be reduced. UC created the Sustainable Design Policy in 2001, committing the institution to build all new construction and major renovations, whenever possible, to LEED Silver standards or higher.

Since 2004, UC has completed six LEED-certified buildings including one Silver and one Gold. The University of Cincinnati is committed to reducing energy usage in buildings and invests millions of dollars in energy upgrades for existing buildings and systems.
