Abstract

Sustainability reporting is a common practice of many large companies and many universities. The purpose of a sustainability report is to create a snapshot of an organization's sustainability performance in a truthful and practical manner. This serves the dual purpose of educating the public about its sustainability efforts and helps to prompt action from the leadership by pointing out areas that require attention. This project created an initial sustainability report for WPI by working with a number of faculty, staff and campus groups to gather relevant information about the campus's operations, the university's academic programs and its interactions with its worldwide communities. All of this is presented in a document that is concise and can be recreated annually.
