The Sustainability Policy Coalition works to bring together student leaders as a unified student voice to advocate on behalf of the university student body on issues of the environment and sustainability. The Policy Team will focus on promoting the University’s energy emissions reductions goals, expanding ways students can become involved in sustainability on campus, and encouraging a bold sustainable agenda here at Georgetown

What we’ve done so far:

  • Began partnership with the Office of Sustainability to make Georgetown a more sustainable transportation friendly campus

  • Making recycling options on campus more accessible and simplified, especially in residence halls

  • Promoting environmental education opportunities for students

What we’re prioritizing for the rest of our term:

  • Work with university facilities to improve energy efficiency and therefore cost effectiveness

  • Increase transparency into Georgetown’s sustainability efforts, and engage students in the development of those goals
