This new bonus episode introduces our Definers to the Master of Science in Environment and Sustainability Management Program, or MS-ESM program at Georgetown University. The MS-ESM program is a full-time, 11-month interdisciplinary program held on-campus in Washington, D.C. Over the 11 month time span, students complete courses that blend science with business principles that are critical to meeting the world's sustainability goals.
In this episode we chat with a professor and a student in the program:
Vishal Agrawal, the Henry J. Blommer Family Endowed Chair in Sustainable Business and a Professor of Operations Management at the McDonough School of Business and
David Yellen, a current Georgetown MS-ESM Student and Strategic Advisor at the Clean Air Task Force.
This bonus episode is perfect for Definers looking to enhance their knowledge about sustainability while continuing their education. If you are interested in being a part of the Fall 2023 cohort, applications are currently being accepted through May 15th. Visit esm.georgetown.edu for more information.

This episode is on water conservation and #sponsored by Procter & Gamble (P&G). Water is Earth’s most abundant natural resource, as more than 71% of the Earth’s surface is water. However, freshwater that can be used by humans is only a small percentage of this available water. Because of this we have to preserve, control, and manage our water resources through conservation. We hope our Definers are thirsty to learn about how we as humans use and can conserve water. The episode includes a focus on how P&G’s Home Care team is working toward a water positive future across its manufacturing facilities, its product offerings that enable people to save water, and its work protecting biodiversity and restoring water in water-stressed areas. In this episode, we have a fantastic conversation with Ashley Fill, Director of Sustainability for North America Home Care at P&G (and long-time Definer!) about the steps P&G has taken to advance water conservation as part of the company’s larger sustainability strategy. Join us for a deep dive into all things water conservation!
Sustainability Defined is the podcast that defines sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Jay Siegel and Scott Breen. Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward. We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode. We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors:
Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree.
The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means.
