Program history and support

Created in 2000 as the Working Group Recycling Committee (WGR), the group's mission has always been to provide education to the MIT Committee on how to reduce its impact on the planet. Now known as the Green Committee, Staff for Sustainability, we continue to grow in membership thanks to the dedication of its volunteer members. The Green Committee membership includes MIT support and administrative staff, representatives from MIT's Office of Sustainability, Environmental Health and Saftey Office, Department of Facilities including the Recycling and Materials Management Office.
