As part of The George Washington University’s GreenGov Symposium, the Institute for Sustainability Research, Education and Policy hosted an Oct. 5th panel discussion on career options in sustainability. This was one of several events GW organized as part of a conference on the greening of the U.S. federal government. Panelists included representatives from the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Postal Service, the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive, the Bureau of National Affairs and consulting company Eco-Coach, Inc.
The GreenGov Symposium, which took place Oct. 5-7, was hosted by GW and the White House Council on Environmental Quality. The meeting addressed a wide range of sustainability topics, including clean energy, water efficiency, climate and adaptation, sustainable buildings and greening the supply chain. It was held in conjunction with the one-year anniversary of the Executive Order on Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance, which set goals for federal agencies in their environmental, energy and economic performance.
