The Georgia Tech Office of Campus Sustainability and partner offices around campus have created a number of plans over the years to help guide campus management and operations. All of these plans hold sustainability as a key tenet.  

As of 2022, the Georgia Tech Sustainability Plan is the official roadmap for implementing sustainability on campus. This plan and other new planning documents are developed in accordance with the Georgia Tech Strategic Plan: 2020-2030 Vision.
