Be Boulder in Facilities Management.

The CU Facilities Management Department (FM) works behind the scenes to build and maintain an environmentally sustainable campus. By incorporating sustainable practices in our day to day operations, we have the ability to significantly reduce the negative environmental impact of buildings that we build and operate, and the services that we offer to our campus customers. For example:

The University of Colorado is confronting the challenges of climate change and sustainability through research and teaching, and by turning research into action on our campus in order to model an institutional pathway to a more sustainable future. The University of Colorado Facilities Management Office of Sustainability was created to be a focus point for sustainability activities on campus and to expedite action and change through:

  • Developing departmental sustainability policies and best practices;
  • Implementing programs that efficiently utilize natural and fiscal capital;
  • Strategic planning, goal setting and performance benchmarking to track progress.
