Adtalem considers environmentally conscious options when developing real estate projects, globally.
Our Corporate Headquarters in Chicago and both the Chicago and Cleveland campuses of Chamberlain University are Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Certified Buildings. The development of the Adtalem headquarters included the installation of energy efficient LED lighting and bottle filling drinking fountains, as well as the use of zero or low volatile organic compound (VOC) paints.
53% of all energy consumed by the Adtalem Educacional do Brasil campuses is powered by the Free Market of Energy from Renewable Sources, an open market for wind, biomass, hydropower and similar energy.
In California, all Adtalem real estate projects meet that state’s Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards for electrical usage.
Per our U.S. Supplier Code of Conduct, we expect our third party partners to use environmentally responsible practices and production methods that meet well-established certification standards. Our supplier policies can be viewed here.
