Office of Sustainability 2023 Impact Report

The MIT Office of Sustainability (MITOS) is a catalyzer and connector for a campus community focused on reducing and mitigating MIT’s contributions to climate change. In this essential role, 2023 was transformative for the Office as it grew its core team, celebrated a decade of work, and looked ahead to the next milestone—all while continuing to expand influence while fostering collaboration across campus. This past year, the Office marked its anniversary at Sustainability Connect, MITOS’s annual event which brings together staff, faculty, students, and researchers driven by the mission of a more sustainable MIT. Reflecting on the milestone, Director of Sustainability Julie Newman shared insight from the evolution of the Office and invited the community to contribute ideas and hopes for the future of sustainability and climate leadership at MIT.
