Sustainability

From the copy room to the operating room, from the classroom to the residence hall, the Emory Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI) guides the efforts to meet the challenges of sustainability across all of Emory University, Oxford College and Emory Healthcare. Emory OSI carries out this imperative by helping to restore the global ecosystem, fostering healthy living and reducing the University’s impact on the local environment. OSI recognizes the critical intersection of social justice with their work and seeks to further a sustainable, just and diverse culture.
