Help us achieve a sustainability milestone by certifying your event today
From small departmental meetings to large-scale campus community gatherings, IU hosts hundreds of events throughout the year. Implementing green practices at these events, no matter the size, can help reduce our waste, conserve resources, and set an example across campus by engaging the community to sustain IU.
We've set a goal to host 200 Green Events on campus by 2020. You can help by implementing green practices at events, no matter the size, to reduce our waste, conserve resources, and set an example across campus by engaging the community to sustain IU!
There are simple steps event planners can take to reduce waste and energy-use during the planning, execution, and cleanup of events. In partnership with Sustain IU, hosts can help reduce the carbon footprint and improve the environmental sustainability of their events, while simultaneously saving money and attracting environmentally conscious attendees.
