The Consortium on Green Design and
Manufacturing (CGDM) was formed in 1993 to encourage multi- disciplinary
research and education on environmental management, design for environment
and pollution prevention issues in critical industries. Faculty and
students come from UC Berkeley’s College of Engineering, School of Public
Health
, Energy
and Resources Group
and Haas School of Business. Ongoing collaboration also
exists with Lawrence Berkeley
National Laboratory’s
  Network for
Energy, Environment, Efficiency and the Information Economy

Together with industry and governmental organizations, we strive to meet
the following objectives: 

  • Form multidisciplinary research agendas
    among engineering, management, public health and policy faculty
    members to address the inherently cross-disciplinary issues of
    environmental design, management and pollution prevention. 
  • Integrate green design and manufacturing
    issues into the curriculum so that students in engineering, business,
    and sciences are exposed to and learn approaches for solving problems
    in these areas. 
  • Establish collaborative research with
    industry partners. 
  • Establish channels of support and
    information exchange with governmental agencies at the city, regional,
    state and federal levels. 
  • Serve as a facilitator for dissemination of
    information on green design and manufacturing for businesses, government,
    management, and the non-profit sector. 



Our strategic research
areas are: 

  • Civil infrastructure systems
  • Electronics industry
  • Service industries
