A brief description of the institution’s green event certification program:
The University of New Brunswick is proud to support many great events throughout the year. However, events can be major sources of waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
The Green Event Program provides resources and support to campus groups on how they can incorporate sustainable choices into their event and reduce their impact on the planet. Whether you are a student, staff or faculty, all are welcome to pursue a Green Event Certification for your next event.
