The five different categories that each sorority or fraternity are critiqued on are Awareness, Waste Reduction, Biodiversity, Efficiency, and Innovation. An example of the questions asked on the scorecard are, Do you currently track energy usage from month to month? What is your highest month of the year?

The scorecard is out of 25 points and requires the signature of both the Sustainability Chair and President of Committee.
