Adjacent to the ISB site, BNL built the Center for Functional
Nanomaterials (CFN) which received a LEED Silver certification in 2008. BNL’s investment in sustainable facilities also
includes the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II)
Ring Building, which achieved LEED Gold certification in 2013.
Attached to the NSLS-II are five Lab and Office Buildings (LOB
1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) which also achieved LEED Gold Certification.
According to the BNL website, “Brookhaven integrates environmental stewardship into all facets of its research and operations.”
These new LEED-certified buildings are a strong testimony to
the laboratory’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.
