Team ID:

College / Administrative Unit: 
Finance and Business
Date Started: 
December 2009
Objective: 
To systematically consider environmental attributes for carpet purchases. While programs such as LEED, etc., encourage environmentally responsible carpet purchases on specific projects, there currently are no formal university standards requiring environmentally responsible carpet purchases for all applications. Environmental considerations, covering the entire spectrum from production to recycling, are becoming imperative as the University pursues its strategic sustainability goals.
Desired Results: 

Develop carpet standards which satisfy the needs of all applicable stakeholders while contributing to the strategic sustainability goals of the University.
