Sustainability Management Council

Sustainability Management Council

The Sustainability Management Council (SMC) was established in 2010, building on the successful cross-School work of the GHG Reduction Goal Working Groups. The SMC is comprised of key Senior University staff including facilities and operational leaders from across campus. 


The SMC’s mission is to facilitate best practice sharing amongst facilities and operations leaders across Harvard Schools and units to enable the cost-effective achievement of the University’s sustainability and energy management goals. 

OFS convenes on a quarterly basis the Sustainability Management Council, comprising senior operational leaders from all Schools and major Business Units, to 1) provide updates, analysis, and recommended approaches for meeting major voluntary and regulatory goals and 2) to ensure operational leaders have what they need to make and track progress. 

Membership: The SMC is led by nine Sustainability Management Steering Group (SM Steering Group) members.
