Sustainability course is
Optional

Description
SUSTAINABILITY FOR BUSINESS MANAGERS: Students will learn about sustainability and related issues from both economic and business management perspectives through lectures, discussion and research. Sustainable businesses are defined here as those which consume resources and deliver products or services in a way that meets “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” The course will prepare students to build the business case for why businesses should adopt sustainable practices. Lecture material will cover environmental economics and business case studies that illustrate the social and fiscal importance of sustainability. Students will write a case-study (suitable for publication) about sustainable business practices in a given company. The Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) which is part of the college, offers Sustainability Planning, training and certification programs. More information is provided on the website:https://www.unomaha.edu/nebraska-business-development-center/services/sustainability.php

Research Opportunities in Sustainability
Yes

Description
Students can work with the professor who does research in sustainability on an Independent Study basis.

School's environmental commitment 1:
Mammel Hall, the home to the College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), was the first building within the University of Nebraska system to earn Gold Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for its green and energy saving features. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system. LEED provides third-party verification on construction projects that are built using strategies aimed at energy savings, water efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. The $34 million facility opened to UNO students, faculty and staff in August 2010. Mammel Hall received LEED certification in 2010 based on the following features: Development Density and Community Connectivity The building’s design works to support connectivity between UNO and the adjacent Aksarben Village development. Alternative Transportation: Public Transportation Access Mammel Hall is located within a quarter-mile of four existing campus shuttle pick-up/drop-off locations and two existing city bus routes, thus promoting the use of public transportation and reducing pollution and land development impacts from automobile use. Daylight and Views, Daylighting 75 Percent of Spaces Daylight fills nearly 75 percent of the offices, conference rooms, open work areas, workstations, administrative areas and the dean’s suite. This feature provides students, faculty and staff a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors, which, according to LEED standards, promotes productivity, comfort and wellbeing. Water Reduction The unique plant species used in the outdoor landscape design will reduce water consumed for irrigation by 52 percent. Construction Waste Management More than 97 percent of construction waste from Mammel Hall was diverted from landfills. Thermographic Imaging Infrared thermographic analysis of the exterior building’s envelope was conducted to insure the maximum thermal integrity. Low Mercury and Energy Efficient Lamps Mammel Hall construction crews established and maintained a toxic material source-reduction program to reduce the amount of mercury brought onto the building site and removed from the site in waste through the lamping of low mercury, energy efficient luminaires. Optimize Energy Performance Energy efficient light fixtures are used throughout Mammel Hall. Overall energy consumption has been reduced to 30 percent below the standard to reduce environmental impacts associated with excessive energy use. Stormwater Management About 20 percent of the rainwater that falls on and around Mammel Hall is fed to basins and allowed to percolate below ground to recharge the aquifer and reduce the demand on storm sewers. “Many businesses have and are making the change to be more green, and many businesses are being created to provide green services and products,” said Rick Yoder of the Pollution Prevention Regional Information Center and the Nebraska Business Development Center at UNO. “What I think most of us are happiest about is that Mammel Hall – and the evolving initiative in sustainability – is representative of what can be accomplished through the great work of a team of many people from across the campus and the community. As nice as it is to be working in a great facility, it’s even nicer to have the collective efforts of campus and community working for future improvements.” Among those community partners is Holland Basham Architects, who designed Mammel Hall. “Mammel Hall not only serves as an iconic getaway to UNO’s Pacific Street campus, but also demonstrates a leadership attitude of doing ‘the right thing’ in terms of sustainability and positioning itself as a leader among peer institutions,” said Curt Witzenburg of Holland Basham Architects in Omaha. “With the College of Business Administration and Mammel Hall adopting a sustainable philosophy, the facility not only generates an increased level of interest within the community, but also has the potential to aid in student and faculty recruitment, as these groups become more aware of the positive effects these concepts have.” The CBA Green Team have conducted waste sorts of the recycling and trash at Mammel Hall in 2012, 2013, and 2015. In 2012, there was 4% contamination of trash in recycling bins, meaning an item that should have been thrown away was placed in the recycling bin. In 2013 contamination of trash was 11% and in 2015 it was down to 6%. In 2012, there was 24% contamination of recycling in ttrash bins, meaning an item that should have been recycled was found in the trash. In 2013 the contamination of recycling was 12% and in 2015 it was 15%. Other Recycling efforts include any electronics recycling and secure shredding bin collection. As members of the EPA's Waste Wise Program, the re-trac online database was also used to track solid waste and recycling amounts. In November 2011, the Univrsity of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) was named as one of the top five colleges and universities who have contributed to Energy Star’s Low Carbon IT Power Campaign Power Management Pledge.

School's environmental commitment 2:
The MBA program offers a concentration in Sustainability. Additionally, the college has deployed thin-client technology for use in all student labs and all digital signage throughout Mammel Hall to reduce paper waste. This technology produces several “green” benefits. The college is able to power a thin client for 15 hours for the same cost it would take to power a desktop for 1 hour. There is also less need for cooling power which saves an estimated 1,200 watts per day per workstation. There are additional environmental benefits, beyond just reducing energy needs. The thin clients only produce a fraction of the waste as compared to desktops when the technologies is disposed of. The deployment also reduced noise generation, and reduced the amount of physical space needed when compared to typical desktops. All of these reductions add up to a better environment for students, faculty and staff.

School's environmental commitment 3:
As Chair of the University of Nebraska at Omaha Sustainability Committee, College of Business professor, Jonna Holland, played an integral role in the shaping of the university-wide Sustainability Master Plan.
