Columbia Business School’s new buildings, Henry R. Kravis and David Geffen Halls, and The Square, a one-acre public green space between the two buildings, were recently awarded LEED® Gold certification from the US Green Building Council.

A LEED certification is the world’s most widely used green building rating system. It measures how sustainable a building development is in areas including energy, water efficiency, material selection, and indoor air quality.

All new buildings at Columbia’s Manhattanville campus to date have received LEED Gold certification, including The Forum, the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, and the Lenfest Center for the Arts. In addition, the overall Manhattanville campus plan achieved a LEED-ND Platinum recognition for its environmentally sustainable design – the first higher education institution in the US and the first organization in New York City to receive this designation.
