Designed to be the greenest building in the world, the Center for Sustainable Landscapes (CSL) generates all of its own energy and treats all storm and sanitary water captured on-site. An integral part of the Phipps visitor experience, it is the first and only building to meet four of the highest green certifications: the Living Building Challenge, LEED Platinum, WELL Building Platinum, and Four-Stars Sustainable SITES.
