A recent article published by the Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business highlights Garry Harris, founder and managing director of Center for Sustainable Communities, a signature partner of Serve-Learn-Sustain and the Center for Sustainable Communities Research and Education (SCoRE).
In high school, Garry Harris (MSEEM ’22) earned the nickname, “Do It All Harris,” by competing in six track and field events, as opposed to one (which is typical). Garry’s life and career have been marked by an ability to move seamlessly across multiple interests. He has combined his passions for energy, sustainability, and community in order to pursue the humble goal he set out to achieve as an entrepreneur – “to save the world.” Garry is committed to pursuing global sustainable development as founder and managing director of the Center for Sustainable Communities (CSC), and president and CEO of the Sustainability Solutions Group & Institute. The Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business is pleased to share a conversation between Garry and Ravi Subramanian, professor of Operations Management. Garry has been a regular partner in Ravi’s class, Sustainability and Shared Value, in which students have developed plans to transform a community in Virginia into a thriving, vibrant, equity-centered Eco District.
