About the Brook Byers Institute for Sustainable Systems (BBISS)
The vision of BBISS is to grow and mobilize Georgia Tech’s knowledge assets to create a sustainable future for all. We are proud to be a key partner to the implementation of Georgia Tech’s Sustainability Next 2023-2030 Strategic Plan and help advance Georgia Tech’s vision of addressing the biggest local, national, and global challenges of our time, relentlessly serving the public good, and developing exceptional leaders with positive societal impact.
As a key Georgia Tech hub for interdisciplinary sustainability research and education, we prioritize creating linkages between researchers in all disciplines towards the achievement of UN Sustainable Development Goals. We support interdisciplinary teams in obtaining high-impact research and education grants. Our primary focus areas are climate science, solutions, and policy; ecosystem and environmental health; sustainable cities and infrastructure; sustainable resource and material use; just and equitable sustainable development; and the economics and business of sustainability.
Our activities are organized around three axes: catalyzing high-impact research, developing future leaders, and fostering partnerships that translate knowledge into practice.
