Princeton Sustainability Committee

The Princeton Sustainability Committee is an advisory body that collaborates closely with the Office of Sustainability to monitor the University’s progress toward its sustainability goals and to encourage improvements by:

  • Creating a forum for faculty, students, and administrators to bring their very different perspectives to bear on our relationship with the environment.
  • Providing a mechanism for cross-fertilization of ideas and coordination of efforts within the institution to improve and preserve the environment.
  • Encouraging the implementation of these ideas when appropriate.
  • Establishing economic and environmental goals for improving Princeton’s relationship with the environment.
  • Recommending and justifying to the administration those policies and practices that can only be implemented by mandate
