Sustainability

Emory integrates environmental awareness into everyday life on campus.

The university protects more than half the campus as green space, promotes alternative transportation options and employs LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for construction. By 2015, Emory intends to get three-quarters of the food served on campus from sustainable and local sources, and to recycle 65 percent of campus waste.
