Why Live Sustainably at Texas A&M?
72% of electricity consumption,
38% of all carbon emissions,
40% of raw materials use,
30% of waste output (136 million tons annually), and
14% of potable water consumption.
Green building techniques reduce these environmental impacts as well as lower total cost of ownership. Furthermore, Green buildings promote a healthier environment for the building occupants. The Texas A&M University campus has over 21.5 million square feet of building space, therefore promoting sustainable building and renovation practices has the potential for significant cost savings and environmental benefits. To further our efforts in green building practices, the DRB website offers many resources about buildings, landscapes and site furnishings.
