how to host a Green Event visit UCR’s
Sustainability website.

to prepare workshops and events for the
fall, build the soil, and transition out of our
summer crops into our autumn carrots,
beets, and greens.

We’re thrilled to announce that

starting this Fall, the R’Garden will host
four workshops per quarter on topics like
dry land gardening, the ecological garden,
soil health, and the importance of trees.
We want the garden to be a living breathing learning space where students and
the community can come together to exchange knowledge, stories, and songs —
a kind of experiential education! We can’t
wait for you to join us.

Our community plots have also
just opened up again. Signing up for a plot
is the perfect way to get involved with the
local food movement sweeping Riverside.
So snag a spot today free of charge and
we’ll provide the water, tools, and all the
other good stuff you’ll need to start growing delicious food on campus.

Solar powered movie nights
at the R’Garden!

GREEN LAB
GREEN LAB CERTIFICATION

Congratulations to our
first Green Certified Labs!! Prof.
Diez’s Lab and Prof. Roose’s Lab in
Botany and Plant Science, CNAS,
earned GOLD certification, successfully completing more than 60%
of the 300 Green Lab assessment


points. The Green Lab Program just
opened the assessment to all laboratories on campus that would like

to save energy, conserve water and
increase recycling in the work place.
The survey is available online and all
details can be found on our website.

RECYCLING IN THE LAB

Most of the waste generated in our labs, plastic, metal, Styrofoam, paper and cardboard are
recyclable. The Green Lab Program
gives a big shout-out to the Genomics Building for being the first building to implement recycling in ALL
laboratories, diverting around 100
pounds per week from landfill. Other laboratory buildings are following in their green footsteps. Encourage your lab to join in as we head
towards our 2020 Zero Waste Goal!


ULTRA-LOW TEMPERATURE
FREEZER INCENTIVE

Lab equipment uses a

considerable amount of energy. A
traditional Ultra Low Temperature
Freezer, used for storing research
samples, running at –80°C consumes on average 17kWh/day of
electricity when they are new and
up to 32 kWh/day after years of
service; which is as much as one
American household’s daily energy consumption. New energy efficient freezers are now available
on the market and consume less
than 9 kWh/day of electricity. The
office of Sustainability is offering
a financial incentive to encourage
researchers to choose an energy efficient ULT for their next purchase.

LEED BUILDING
HOW MANY LEED
CERTIFICATIONS HAVE
BEEN AWARDED TO UCR
BUILDINGS?



LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design)
is a green building certification
program. LEED certifications are
awarded to buildings that implement sustainable design strategies and construction practices,
focused on site selection, water
efficiency, materials and resources,
energy and atmosphere, indoor
environmental quality and innovative solutions.

UCR Office of Sustainability Staff and LEED interns have
been working diligently since

2011 to implement LEED standards to campus buildings. We are
excited to announce that all our

UCR Campus
Facilities by LEED Certifications

LEED efforts are finally paying off.
On average, UCR has earned three

LEED certifications per year since
our first certification in 2011. By
December of 2015, UCR will have
a total of 16 LEED Certified buildings.

Do you know where all 16
LEED buildings are located? Perhaps you passed by a few on your
way to class, or better yet, you
have a lecture in one of them and
didn’t know it.

Carefully observe the sustainable features the next time
you visit UCR LEED buildings.
Focus on natural daylighting, access to outdoor views, occupant
comfort, recycling efforts, water
efficient fixtures in restrooms, and
drought-tolerant landscaping, just
to name a few.
