Becoming a tradition in itself, Georgia Tech has once again earned accolades for its efforts in sustainability.

The Princeton Review named Tech to its seventh annual Green Honor Roll for the year 2015. Tech was one of 24 colleges and universities receiving the highest possible score of 99. More than 800 schools were evaluated for the annual listing. Tech has made the Green Honor Roll since the Princeton Review began tracking its Green Ratings.

Georgia Tech has also earned a place in the Sierra Club’s Top 10 Cool Schools list, which spotlights universities placing an emphasis on environmental responsibility. This is the third year Tech has been included on the list, this year at No. 10.

“It is a real honor to be nationally recognized throughout the years for all of the Institute’s efforts in sustainability which truly permeates just about all that we do here at Tech,” said Steve Swant, executive vice president for the Division of Administration and Finance. “Sustainability is an ongoing effort and everyone’s responsibility – not just a project here and there. We are proud of our commitment to doing the right thing for the Georgia Tech campus, our community and the environment.”
