The opportunity is born of the integration of scientific, engineering, and design insights with humane decision-making in business, government, and civil society. The responsibility is motivated by a renewed international commitment to mitigating carbon emissions and achieving sustainable development goals. ESI mobilizes students, faculty, and staff from all MIT schools and departments to forge a people-centric, planet-positive future"
