Georgia Tech intends to be a leader in sustainable issues and to promote action and awareness through education, research and business practice.
What is the Plan?
Georgia Tech’s 2018 – 2028 Strategic Plan for Sustainable Practice is a 10 year roadmap to create a sustainable campus. Sustainable Practice is defined as the “execution of efficient and effective actions that maximize the positive impact on natural, human and financial resources, and create the best possible live-work-learn-play experience for our campus community and surrounding neighborhood.”
Purpose of the Plan
- Elevate already existing sustainability principles, ideas, programs and projects into a cohesive Institute-wide commitment for sustainable operations and business practices.
- Accelerate Institutional sustainable aspirations and create a road map for the future.
- Inspire the Tech community of faculty, staff, and students to support action toward sustainable outcomes institutionally and personally.
A Roadmap of our Sustainable Journey
The draft Plan was developed by an interdisciplinary campus Cohort facilitated by the Office of Campus Sustainability and nominated by executive leadership. The Cohort was supplemented by a diverse group of campus representatives who provided perspectives and expertise during the development phase. This document serves as a road map of what we can achieve over the next 10 years.
