Educate and Motivate
We all know it’s true – what happens here changes the world! MIT researchers are already working on sustainable technology from recycling-sorting robots to oil-gobbling bacteria.
While MIT’s research laboratories occupy only about 25% of the physical footprint of the campus, they collectively account for over 65% of campus energy use and emissions. Much of this energy is essential to provide a safe and a productive research environment, but when everyone is thoughtful about their individual and lab-group energy use, lab waste, and other habits, it makes a really big difference. MIT offers programs and resources that help every scientist do their part, whether if its personal in in your daily life in the lab, or if you want to help MIT reach its goal of 32% reduction in emissions by 2030.
