  • In 2016, the DC campus launched a reusable to-go container initiative in campus cafes, helping to reduce waste and engage students, staff and faculty about daily reuse opportunities more broadly.
  • Since 2008, the DC campus decreased electricity by 16.9 percent and natural gas by 87.9 percent.
