A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome :

The goal of Certified Wolfpack Green is to further sustainability at NC State by providing helpful information and encouragement for campus entities to institute sustainable practices. Plans for the program are to have a certification in each of the following categories: Events, Workplace and Labs.

A campus entity will earn points for adopting, or completing, sustainable practices which will be applied to a certification level:


Many campus organizations have been taking strides to green their events for quite a while. It was in part through their inspiration and encouragement that we decided to create a more formal process for recognition of these efforts. A green events certification offers campus events the opportunity to be more sustainable and provides a way for both the host group as well as the program to promote the accomplishments of campus. The certification levels allow for recognition across many areas and regardless of event type. Additionally, measures are being taken to incorporate this certification into many of the campus event planning processes.

The Green Events Certification criteria includes the following categories: food, waste, purchasing, education, marketing, transportation, energy and water, service, innovation.
