Pursuit of sustainability is integral to the Garrison Institute’s mission. We are committed to understanding, measuring and minimizing the environmental impact of our own operations. Our 77,000 square foot facility built in the 1920s was not originally designed for energy efficiency, but we have retrofitted it with renewable energy systems and other upgrades, and work together with our guests and operations staff to implement sustainable best practices and sourcing. Our practices and facilities continually improve over time, so our resource use profile, carbon footprint and overall environmental impacts are continually improving, too. The process is ongoing. Below is an overview of the current state of this work in progress.
