The MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI) is an institute-wide effort to mobilize the substantial scientific, engineering, policy, and design capacity of the MIT community to contribute to addressing climate change and other environmental challenges of global import.

Located at MIT’s main campus, ESI advances a durable, sustainable relationship between humans and the environment across all disciplines.  It pursues multidisciplinary research, education, events, and partnerships to help move society toward an environmentally and socially sustainable future.

Its mission is to advance science, engineering, policy and social science, design, the humanities, and the arts toward a people-centric and planet-positive future.
