Georgetown’s President pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions at least 50% by the year 2020.  It is now 2018, and this target has already been met!

So what should Georgetown do next? It’s our job to figure that out.

We will assess what should be done in two parts:

  • A “top-down” assessment to come up with an ambitious GHG target or other goals
  • A “bottom-up” assessment to figure out how Georgetown could meet this target/goals
