Miami University's Farmer School of Business is included in an list of 10 environmentally aware U.S. business schools with programs that support sustainability as an economic goal.

The 10 schools, including Mason School of Business at College of William and Mary, McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, Ross School of Business at Michigan University and Stanford Graduate School of Business, were chosen for “embracing the future” of the benefits of green design.

The Farmer School of Business, established in 2009, is noted for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certified building, energy efficient HVAC and lighting systems, low-emission fabrics and surface coatings, and low-flow faucets and toilets. It incorporated minimal paving while preserving mature trees located outside the building.

According to a 2011 survey from McKinsey & Company, more companies are incorporating sustainable practices to promote growth and add value to their reputations, an environmental focus in business culture that begins in school with the next generation of leaders.
