At its simplest, sustainability is defined as “living within the means of nature.” Namely, humans must demand no more resources than nature can provide and generate no more wastes than nature can assimilate. At Georgia Tech, sustainability is a core value that touches every person, action, and decision of the Institute.
The Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems enhances Georgia Tech’s research, education, and service missions, and campus operations through leadership, communications, development, and decision making inspired and defined by the principles of sustainability. Programs and projects initiated or supported by the BBISS lie at the intersections of these themes.
