Among the Yale Health Center’s environmental features are high-efficiency lighting fixtures and controls that contribute to energy savings; tinted windows that maximize natural daylight in the building while providing privacy and reducing excess sunlight in the interior; low-flow toilets that reduce the use of water; a green rooftop meditation garden with self-sustaining plants; and the use of sustainable building materials such as bamboo and other elements that result in improved indoor air quality.

Turner has also taken a number of steps to fulfill its commitment to reduce its environmental footprint. These steps include new or renovated offices achieving LEED certification, improving the fuel efficiency of its vehicles and a far reaching construction waste management program. To help achieve its goals, the Company recently issued the second edition of its Turner Green Project Operations Manual. The Manual assists staff managing projects seeking LEED certification. In addition, the Manual has several features including a jobsite orientation program called "Safe and Sustainable" that makes sustainable jobsite best practices standard for every Turner project.
According to Deane, "A large part of the reason Turner has been so successful in increasing its portfolio of green projects is that our clients want to work with a company that shares their commitment to sustainability and has the resources and experience to deliver."
