The Ohio State University Sustainability Plan
Heapy Engineering co-led The Ohio State University’s Sustainability Plan Project Team with Mithun. The focus of the effort was to identify synergistic solutions and design standards to create a more sustainable campus consistent with the University’s mission and climate change targets. Sustainability analyses included water consumption, ecological function of campus landscapes, reduction of impacts from purchasing decisions, food systems and waste flows. Further, energy and greenhouse gas emissions data, as compiled by the University and its consultants, were incorporated into the Sustainability Plan. Additionally, the Team produced OSU’s Climate Action Plan to comply with the requirements of the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment.
