The Tulane Green Machine is a collaborative group of people across multiple administrative divisions dedicated to making campus buildings more sustainably designed, run, and maintained. The university is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. The university requires all new construction be Certified by the Green Building Certification Institute, administrators of the LEED Program, at a minimum of the LEED Silver level. Nine members of the Green Machine are LEED Accredited Professionals.
Tulane University currently has 5 buildings and 2 renovations certified by the U.S. Green Building council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program and several more projects underway with the goal of achieving LEED Certification at or above the Silver level.

Tulane is proud to present residents of certain residential colleges on the uptown campus a chance to view how much energy, water, and gas their hall uses through the Building Energy Kiosk by Johnson Controls. The kiosk also provides helpful tips on how residents can reduce their energy use, water consumption and other helpful tips to live a greener lifestyle.

The Office of Sustainability, a division of the University Planning Office, is working hard to implement green strategies in to everyday life on the University Campus. For additional university sustainability initiatives see their website.
