Carbon Tax

In 2016, ASWC passed an internal carbon tax. This tax is designed to help mitigate Whitman’s students’ carbon footprint when traveling with student government stipends. When a student applies for ASWC funds to travel to a conference, symposium, or school-sanctioned trip, a small tax is automatically added. The revenue made from that tax funnels into the school’s Green Fund, which is a fund available to all students to use towards sustainability improvements on campus.
