Programs and Progress

IIT will achieve sustainability through action, not just words.


What we are doing. Actions
Putting the IIT Sustainability initiatives, commitments and polices into action, our programs will move us closer to our goal of becoming the “most sustainable urban campus in the U.S.” Read our commitments.

IIT Sustainability Programs in Progress

  • Energy
  • Emissions/ Green House Gases (GHG )
  • Green Buildings
  • Healthy Water
  • Waste Materials
  • Community
  • Evaluations
    Measuring every step of the way to meet our measurement criteria and continually give us an accurate understanding how we are doing.

    Internally
    We will set goals for our programs and projects and evaluate our findings against them, and then report the metrics.

    Externally
    We are reviewed and measured from a number of outside sources. See who's watching IIT and how they think we are doing. We will present our scores and rankings from them as they become available.

Programs are directed by the Office of Campus Energy and Sustainability (OCES) and managed by Faculty, Staff and Students. The direction and management of our programs follow our Project and Program Requirements and Metrics Established by the Sustainability Vision.
