Though Georgia Tech is known for white and gold, green has practically become a third school color in recent years as the Institute continues to be nationally recognized for its efforts in sustainability.

The Princeton Review named Tech to its sixth annual Green Honor Roll for the year 2014. Tech was one of 22 colleges and universities receiving the highest possible score of 99. More than 800 schools were evaluated for the annual listing.

Georgia Tech has also earned a place in the Sierra Club’s Top 10 Cool Schools list, which spotlights universities placing an emphasis on environmental responsibility. This is the second year Tech has been included on the list, this year at No. 8. Georgia Tech’s place on this list is also featured on Business Insider.

"Georgia Tech has been designing and constructing sustainable buildings for decades, holistically integrating architecture, landscape, engineering, technology and ecology," said Howard Wertheimer, director of Capital Planning and Space Management. "It is part of our ethos to be good stewards of our environment, and we work hard every day to make informed decisions that will create a memorable campus experience for our students, faculty, staff, alumni and visitors."
