Why should Broad, and Broadies, care about sustainability?
Sustainability@Broad believes that Broad needs to fulfill our responsibility to protect the environment and ensure that our research will be most impactful and effective. Our mission goes hand-in-hand with Broad’s overall mission to improve human health: we are working to encourage efficient and thoughtful use of resources in a changing, climatologically uncertain landscape. As a pioneering, collaborative, and globally-reaching institution, Broad is uniquely poised to model sustainability-minded business practices and to inspire our fellow biomedical technology and educational leaders to do the same.
