Infrastructure and Sustainability (I&S) has numerous policies and practices in place to support a sustainable and resilient physical environment. We are responsible stewards of our campus resources and environment throughout the lifecycles of buildings and grounds projects. The Office of Sustainability ensures and enables a multidisciplinary approach in developing and maintaining this sustainable infrastructure by partnering with Institute research groups and academic members.

Infrastructure and Sustainability (I&S) supports three major campus events annually. Campus community members are encouraged to visit each event's respective information pages to learn how to take part, as some events are led by campus partners and engagement opportunities may be different year-over-year.

Earth Day

The Georgia Tech Earth Day Festival was founded and led by the I&S Office of Waste Management and Recycling for its first twenty years. In 2019, oversight of this exciting, campus-wide and now week-long event transitioned to Campus Sustainability, with logistical support provided by I&S. In 2023, The Office of Sustainability coordinated a full month of earth-friendly activities. Learn more.

Tech Beautification Day

This early spring student-led event is supported by the I&S Landscape Services department. During Greek Week, students, faculty and staff participate in a busy day of service across campus planting trees, shrubs, and flowers, spreading pine straw, and completing other outdoor projects to support and improve the campus landscape. Check it out!

Sustainable Facilities Forum 

This annual event, hosted by the I&S Sustainability Committee, is for all members of the campus community who strive to learn how Georgia Tech is managing our built environment.  Visit the event page to read about the 2022 event, held Tuesday, October 25 during Campus Sustainability Week.
