The Office of Sustainability provides leadership and direction for sustainability programs at WPI. The Office coordinates efforts across WPI’s administrative, academic, and facilities areas in order to reach WPI’s sustainability goals. The Office includes a Director, an Energy & Sustainability Manager, and a group of dedicated student interns and WPI’s Sustainability Advisory Committee. Each year the office issues an Annual Report documenting WPI’s current status with regard to sustainability aspects ranging from greenhouse gas emissions to energy research projects and community engagement. Through these efforts, we strive to position WPI as a leader in sustainability efforts on campus, in the Worcester community, and globally.  For questions or comments please email green@wpi.edu.
