What is the HBS Green Living Program?
The HBS Green Living Program is a peer-to-peer education program that promotes sustainable living. Student Sustainability Associates work to encourage energy and water conservation and recycling and waste reduction through activities and information sharing in each HBS dorm and the common areas. They also work closely with HBS Operations on projects to help remove barriers to student conservation through infrastructure and policy improvements. The program is supported by HBS Housing and Operations, and is just one of the many ways that these departments are working to make the campus more sustainable.
A total of seven students are employed to work 3-4 hours each per week on a range of education and outreach programs and energy-efficiency measures. Five students work in the dorms and two works in the school's common areas or on special projects.
The program is modeled in part on the successful undergraduate Faculty of Arts and Sciences Resource Efficiency Program.
