The college adheres to the Los Angeles Community College District's sustainable design standards. The Bond Steering Committee worked to address LEED certification requirements and sustainability measures for all campus construction projects. The campus's master contracts call for Energy Star products, green cleaning products, and only recyclable furniture is purchased through the LACCD Furniture Value Program. LACCD's carpet purchasing policies aim to minimize VOC emissions and require that all old carpeting be recycled. The district's chancellor signed the Presidents' Climate Commitment in 2007.
The campus has completed a greenhouse gas emissions inventory, and purchases some renewable energy. Campus energy efficiency initiatives include a demand-side energy management project, a thermal energy storage system, and building modernization.
