Our Approach

Sustainability is integral to every discipline and function of the Institute – from our academics to our research to our operational practices. 

We seek to facilitate the sharing of knowledge across departments, administrative offices, faculty, and students. We actively encourage partnerships and help teams to communicate, collaborate, and support each other in achieving the Institute’s sustainability goals.

Our holistic approach recognizes the role each of us has in creating a sustainable environment at Georgia Tech. It encourages us to think beyond traditional organizational structures and work inclusively with all stakeholders on campus. 

It is extremely exciting to know that our team is supporting some of the most brilliant complex-system designers in the world. Using our built environment as a living laboratory is a concept that is growing in higher ed, and I believe we at Georgia Tech are leading that growth in a thoughtful and responsible way.
