The Sustainability Initiative runs, supports, and promotes events throughout the school-year. We are eager to support the efforts of MIT faculty, students, and alumni, so if you have an event you would like to showcase on our website, please email

We also promote a small number of events outside of MIT each year that are of high interest and value to our constituencies; if you are running an event that we should know about, please contact

Royal Sonesta Hotel

This 2-day, in-depth discussion with some of sustainability's top minds examined leading-edge work that is expanding the way business creates, quantifies, and manages the value it delivers through the metrics it adopts.
