In 1995, the Princeton Environmental Reform Commitee published a comprehensive environmental audit of the University. It reviewed ten areas of impact including: procurement, solid waste, energy and food. Five years later, the Princeton Environmental Institute commissioned undergraduate students to conduct a similar report, assessing changes in practices and policies since the 1995 audit and analyzing the motivations for these changes.
