Overseeing Sustainability for a 4Msf Convention Center with Tim Trefzer

Tim Trefzer is a Sustainability & Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at the Georgia World Congress Center. With his team, he creates and establishes the CSR strategy not only for the GWCC but also for the Georgia Dome, the Centennial Olympic Park, and the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center.

“Green building has definitely leveraged sustainability. It has affected all aspects of organizations aside from the building environment.” – Tim Trefzer

Career in Sustainability

Tim has served as the Sustainability Chair for multiple sporting events in the United States. These include the 2013 NCAA Final Four and the 2018 Super Bowl.

After receiving his degree in Residential Science & Housing and Business Administration from Florida State University, he furthered his studies with a Master’s Degree in Sustainability Leadership from Arizona State University.

Step Higher with the Online Program

The year 2014 opened the opportunity for Tim to enrol in the Sustainability Leadership program online. ASU has been a leader in higher education for sustainability for more than 10 years now.

Among those who join the program are individuals from corporations, local governments, nonprofits, and independent consultancies. There is a wide range of organizations where sustainability can be implemented.

Sustainability For and With the Community

Tim works with different stakeholders in the campus to incorporate sustainability in various areas. Integrating it with the community they belong is also something that they look forward to. More than simply being a big campus on the block, it pays forward to also be the neighbor of choice.
