SSI Board-Zero Waste Events Coordinator

Greg is a Junior in Program in the Environment studying sustainable development. He is also minoring in both environmental geology through the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and in business through the Ross School of Business. As a Planet Blue Student Leader, he worked towards increasing water bottle filling stations in the dormitories, helped increase composting on campus, and ran training events to help increase environmental literacy. He also worked as a research assistant at the Institute for Social Reach studying human behavior and environmental sustainability, researching factors that influence sustainable behavior change. Greg’s interest in sustainability stems from an interest in understanding how increasing societal environmental literacy is changing consumer markets, and hopes to make a career based on the implementation of green technologies and practices in the global economy. Greg’s primary role on the SSI board is managing the University’s zero waste program for students.
