Pomona College employs the highest sustainability standards with every new construction project. Recognizing the challenge of adding square footage to already straining resources, Pomona College follows LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) practices with each step of the construction process. Mandated by the Sustainability Action Plan (2011), the College strives for a minimum of LEED Gold level certification with each project.

The following are the LEED certified buildings on the Pomona College campus:

  • Richard C Seaver Biology (Silver, 2006)
  • Lincoln Hall (Gold, 2007)
  • Edmunds Hall (Gold, 2007)
