The Georgia Institute of Technology is joining other leading Atlanta organizations to participate in the Atlanta Better Buildings Challenge (Atlanta BBC). The goal of the challenge is to reduce by 20 percent the energy and water usage of existing downtown buildings by 2020, and to inspire others to follow. Twenty buildings in downtown Atlanta are expected to participate in phase one of the initiative.

Georgia Tech continues to receive national attention for its commitment to sustainability, and this week was no different.

The Institute garnered an overall grade of "A-" on the 2011 College Sustainability Report Card, also known as the Green Report Card. The Sustainable Endowments Institute issues the annual report to measure sustainability initiatives at colleges and universities.
