A Letter From Amit Mrig, President, Academic Impressions
July 2011. Whether your institution is driven by social values, economic reality, or political and market demand, the trend to become more sustainable is undeniable. Yet, with all of the momentum throughout the industry and society writ large, including more than 650 campus presidents pledging carbon neutrality, most sustainability efforts have a difficult time achieving meaningful gains.
Such efforts are often driven more by the individual will of a student, faculty member, or campus president than through smart planning, implementation, and resourcing. This reality was the impetus for the Academic Impressions Sustainability Road Map – a methodology that advocates for an integrated, scalable approach to campus sustainability, and one that can help generate broad-based support and buy-in.
We’ve gathered experts from the leading green institutions to share their insights on how to maximize the economic, social, and environmental returns on these investments. We hope their advice will be useful.
