A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate for construction and demolition waste:

Emory's Sustainability Vision set goals to reduce Emory's total waste stream to 95% by 2025, and composting, recycling, or reusing at least 95% of building construction material. In congruence with this vision and Emory’s LEED building policies, Campus Services, in partnership with various recyclers, has set high standards for construction and demolition waste diversion that are followed by Emory’s construction contractors.
