Sustainability is often measured in terms of impact on the environment, social equity, and economics -- known as the "triple bottom-line" of sustainability. Emory is committed to ensuring that the operations of the University promote social systems that support a healthy and productive life for all people, locally and globally.
The focus on social equity also encompasses a commitment to go beyond our campus gates in creating a healthy future for all members of our community.
Emory serves as a resource for communities, businesses, and individuals interested in sustainability practices and has partnered with many community outreach and social services-related organizations to further the positive impact of Emory on the local and global society.
