What is Environmental Sustainability? 

Sustainability invests in the present while keeping in mind the needs of future generations. These values are composed of three major pillars: economic, environmental, and social, which can be broken down as profits, planet, and people. The Office of Sustainability at W&M invests in this value by fostering a community that practices collaboration in environmental, social, and economic responsibility. To learn more about environmental sustainability at W&M, check out this sustainability guide.
