ASU Sun Devil Stadium recently earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, recognizing sustainable buildings and communities. The USGBC LEED rating system assesses the sustainability of structures based on their construction, design, maintenance and operations.
Buildings earn one of four ratings: LEED-certified, LEED Silver, LEED Gold and LEED Platinum. In 2007, Biodesign Institute Building B was Arizona’s first-ever LEED Platinum rating, the highest level awarded.
ASU now has 66 LEED-certified building projects: seven LEED Platinum, 34 LEED Gold, 24 LEED Silver and 1 LEED-certified. New ASU construction sets LEED Silver as a minimum rating, with LEED Platinum as the goal.
