The 2022 MIT Sustainability Summit will take place on Friday, February 25th, 2022 at the MIT Sloan Samberg Center.
Last year's theme, "For Good Measure" explored the lingering questions and tremendous need for measuring impact on both people and the planet. The subject has become increasingly urgent as we overshoot several ecological boundaries, all while failing to provide basic needs for civilians worldwide. There is pressure on companies and governments to make substantial positive change, but what does this mean? How do we define sustainability and measure our progress toward or away from that ideal? Attendees left with a better understanding of what criteria they should consider when evaluating impact for environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
As one of the world’s preeminent research universities, MIT and its five schools --science, engineering, architecture and planning, humanities and social science, and management--are in a unique position to bring business and societal leaders together with academic researchers and students to address challenges in sustainability.
We invite you to join us at the 2022 MIT Sustainability Summit as we explore the future of measuring sustainability.
