Mayor Gray, University presidents pledge to make DC the 'Greenest College Town in America'
Date:2/29/2012

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Earlier today, nine university presidents representing the nation's most prestigious higher education institutions joined Mayor Vincent C. Gray at American University's LEED-Gold certified School of International Service Building to sign the District of Columbia Mayor's College and University Sustainability Pledge (CUSP).

This approach to sustainability is the first of its kind in the nation. Its impact stems from both its collaborative nature and its impetus for participants to set and work toward meaningful and measurable goals. Currently, no other U.S. city has formed such a compact between its entire higher education sector and its local government to advance sustainability.

When the universitiesincluding American University, Corcoran College of Art + Design, The Catholic University of America, Gallaudet University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, Howard University, Trinity Washington University and the University of the District of Columbiaand the city implement their sustainable commitments by the pledge's December 31, 2012 deadline, the District of Columbia will be able to declare itself the 'Greenest College Town in America.'

"The commitment made by our universities today demonstrates their dedication to making the District the most sustainable city in the country," says Mayor Gray. "This partnership, coupled with our Sustainable DC efforts, is a major step forward in ensuring that the District is environmentally, economically and socially sustainable. As said in my State of the District speech, I want the District to be the world leader in sustainability and this pledge will help make that a reality."

The pledge is an agreement by the schools to pursue a myriad of sustainability measures related to energy use and buildings, green education, transportation, waste reduction, grounds maintenance, purchasing, and the management and reporting of progress. Each signatory will select
