UL Lafayette has been recognized by the EPA as a Green Power Partner, primarily as a result of the PART Lab that now powers a major portion of South Campus using renewable energy. 

The EPA chooses Green Power Partners based on a "commitment to green power" that "demonstrates a sustainable choice that helps to reduce the negative health impacts of air emissions including those related to ozone, fine particles, acid rain, and regional haze."

This new EPA recognition is in addition to the recent news about the University being ranked No. 195 internationally for its eco-friendliness. The PART Lab is one part of the larger sustainability effort of the University.
