Georgia Tech Launches Climate Action Planning Process

January 10, 2023 | Atlanta, GA

Georgia Tech strives to be a leader in climate action across the Institute’s operational, educational, research, and economic development missions. As such, a process is underway to leverage this knowledge and develop a comprehensive, cross-cutting Climate Action Plan.

The Climate Action Plan, a key deliverable of the Sustainability Next Plan, will support the Georgia Tech strategic plan efforts to lead by example in solving some of the most pressing issues of our time. Once developed, this plan will lay the pathway forward for the Institute to achieve its climate goals, including reaching carbon neutrality by 2050.  

About the Process 

The planning process launched last year and will extend through 2023. Led by Infrastructure and Sustainability, the process will include developing a greenhouse gas inventory, modeling potential mitigation strategies, and engaging with faculty, students, and staff from across campus. The engagement process will include an advisory task force and individual working groups that focus on specific climate solutions. Once complete, the plan will align with Georgia Tech’s broader commitments to address climate change and provide an actionable roadmap to achieving carbon neutrality and climate justice.
