Georgetown plays a leading role in addressing critical sustainability challenges through its academic mission, physical footprint and financial operations. The university takes an integrated and holistic approach to sustainability, placing value on a "quadruple" bottom line: people, planet, prosperity, and purpose, guided by our Catholic and Jesuit values and our commitment to the common good.

“I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet. We need a conversation which includes everyone, since the environmental challenges we are undergoing, and its human roots, concern and affect us all.”

– Pope Francis, Laudato Si’
