The Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is working to reduce Harvard's greenhouse gases and to create a more sustainable campus by utilizing the innovative ideas and enthusiasm of committed students, staff, and faculty.
The SEAS Green Team was formed in 2009. This group of dedicated volunteers works to encourage individual behavior change across the School and focuses on educating peers and colleagues about sustainability through events and various initiatives.
SEAS also works closely with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on Green Lab initiatives, and collaborates frequently with the Earth and Planetary Sciences department and the Physics department.
SEAS is proud to be a partner in the University's efforts to reduce our green house gas emissions and promote green thinking. In addition to pursuing research in critical areas like next generation 'smart' materials, solid oxide fuel cells, and nano filtration, we have furthered our local efforts by partnering with FAS on increasing the efficiencies of our labs. In addition, our green team is always looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint in our offices and classrooms.
