In February 2020, the GW Board of Trustees established a high-level Task Force on Environmental, Social, and Governance responsibilities. This action was in response to on-going discussions among many members of the University community, including students, faculty and other stakeholders. 
 
The Board’s objectives are as follows:
Provide an institutional statement of beliefs on environmental, social, and governance responsibility
Address a broad range of environmental, social, and governance issues
Establish a process to consider proposals from the GW community
Promote education, research, and intellectual debate
Inform constituents about policies, practices, and obligations
 
The Task Force has focused initially on the environmental issues in ESG and has drafted a set of initial recommendations at the link below.

The task force will continue to accept feedback from the GW community in the coming months.

 
The SEAS Environmental and Energy Management Institute recently provided input to the Task Force, which will be seeking further input and feedback from the University community.
