LEED Silver Certification Standards

At SUNY Potsdam,we are not only expanding our campus to better serve our students, we also recognize that the future of our environment is worth our consideration, time and money.

Therefore, the Performing Arts Building will meet a minimum LEED Silver Certification.


The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System was developed to provide a set of standards for environmentally sustainable construction.

  • We are doing everything we can to make sure this building is as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.
  • Having a LEED certification for this project sends a clear message that we value the environment and our community.
  • With additional resources (attainable through generous potential donors) we could achieve a Gold or Platinum Certification.
