It takes more than 7 million kilowatt-hours of electricity and nearly 40,000 cubic feet of natural gas to keep our campus running for a year. Additionally, our buildings are responsible for nearly 75% of our carbon footprint. From LEED-certified buildings to energy management, we're making great strides in reducing these consumption levels and shrinking our carbon footprint.
