Daylight harvesting systems are used to reduce artificial lighting (i.e. skylights to maximize natural lighting, light fixtures which respond to natural light and lights that automatically turn on and off with use).


The buildings materials have been extracted, harvested or recovered as well as manufactured within 500 miles of Stony Brook Southampton.

Greenguard is an independent organization that aims to protect human health and improve quality of life by enhancing indoor air quality and reducing people’s exposure to chemicals and other pollutants. 


The library is designed with ground source heat pumps (GSHP) - the Library's central heating and cooling system transfers heat to or from the ground. The heat recovery ventilators which reduce the heating and cooling requirements for the building are designed to significantly reduce the carbon footprint on the environment.
