A Career in Sustainability

VT XMNR 2019

When you were in high school meeting with your career adviser or counselor, were you ever presented with a career in sustainability as an option? If yes, I would love the name of your adviser to send them a thank you card!

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American eats over 222 pounds of meat a year.

Livestock are a leading cause of climate change resulting in approximately 14.5 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions.
