Fermilab Chief Operating Officer Kate Gregory shares information on Fermilab’s Site Sustainability Plan with (from right) National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy, Rep. Sean Casten (Ill.) and Rep. Lauren Underwood (Ill.) during a visit to the lab on Aug. 10. Fermilab’s commitment to minimizing the environmental impact of site operations is described in the Site Sustainability Plan. The primary emphasis of the plan is on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Recent constructions that have incorporated high-performance sustainability building standards and energy efficiency include the Integrated Engineering Research Center, Illinois Accelerator Research Center’s Office, Technology and Education Building, Industrial Center Building Addition (all LEED Gold certified), and the Grid Computing Center (Energy Star-certified).
