“Emory is making huge strides in large part due to Ciannat.”
–David C. Payne, Senior Director of Communications, Emory

Emory University boasts one of the largest inventories by square footage of energy-efficient buildings in the nation and is nearly halfway through the ambitious 10-year plan to reduce energy by 25% and change behaviors about the environment.

Most everyone agrees that sustainable practices are beneficial, but Ciannat has the ability to effectuate the changes in behavior that will allow Emory to achieve its ambitious sustainability goals. It takes strong sustainable leadership to change the daily routines for Emory University and Emory Healthcare’s twenty thousand plus students, doctors, nurses, researchers, faculty, administrators and staff. It’s not an easy feat, but Emory is making huge strides in large part due to Ciannat and her enthusiasm for all things sustainable.
