Welcome to the GRITS public library! GRITS is a project-management web platform that allows users to track the energy, financial, and carbon savings data from their sustainability projects. Here you can view a catalog of completed projects from institutions that have opted into public sharing. The platform features over 900 institutional subscribers with access to a private library that displays over 3,100 projects. You can learn more by visiting gogrits.org.

Thank you for your patience while the library loads.

Note: Average savings are calculated by dividing total savings by {{ current_institution.stats_setting.all_projects ? 'the total number of projects, not just those with relevant savings' : 'the number of projects with relevant savings, not the total number of projects' }}. Median savings are calculated based on only projects with relevant savings. Modify the calculations on this page by changing your statistic settings HERE
