A Model of Sustainability - Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design

Georgia Tech is home to the Kendeda Building, a building certified under the Living Building Challenge - the world’s most ambitious and holistic green building certification program. Stop by, check out the website, or sign up for a tour! 

Get Involved - Work Green

Georgia Tech’s Work Green is a certification program designed to recognize and celebrate staff and faculty who have taken the lead in promoting sustainable practices in the workplace. The certification process requires staff and faculty to report the sustainable practices used in their office in the areas of energy and water efficiency, waste management, engagement, safe and healthy environments, purchasing, transportation, and innovation. All staff are eligible to apply or collaborate with your new teammates on a submission!

Our Progress -  The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System

The Sustainability, Tracking Assessment & Rating System (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and universities developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education to help organizations measure their sustainability performance.
