Equipment covers a broad category of items from sports to lab to facilities equipment. Hundreds of items are purchased on campus through multiple departments. The Office of Sustainability and the Procurement Office work directly with key departments to incorporate sustainable purchasing criteria and provide evaluation advice. Sustainability clauses are standard text in RFPs and tender documents. Common strategies are used to capture key equipment categories.

Office of Sustainability and facilities staff participate in major and minor projects. Annual and ongoing reviews are held with facilities planners to review projects and discuss sustainability criteria and technical specifications for electrical and mechanical equipment from pumps, motors, chillers, boilers, lights, air handlers, heat pumps, etc.  The Office of Sustainability spearheads projects to upgrade to more sustainable products such as a recent deployment of high efficiency pumps across the agricultural campus.

Ongoing work is being focused on sustainability criteria for lab equipment. Studies and audits 500 Internal Server Error
