Sustainable Events and Offices

Sustainable Events Program

When we plan more sustainable events, we put our values into action. Every event, no matter how small, offers us an opportunity to create an inclusive space for social gathering, to manage our financial resources responsibly and to minimize our campus community’s impact on the environment.

Get Started

Step 1

Use your UCID Login to access the Sustainable Events and Offices SharePoint. Click “Start a New Checklist” on the “Home” page. Click “New Item” to open a new checklist, or access supporting resources through the Sustainable Events Program Home page.

Step 2

Use the Sustainable Events checklist to keep track of your progress towards certification as you plan your event.

Step 3

When you have completed your checklist, click “Submit Completed Checklist” at the bottom of the form to submit it. A representative from the Sustainability Resource Centre will contact you to confirm the details of your certification and award your Bronze, Silver, or Gold badge.

Step 4

Pick up your Sustainable Events Banner from the Sustainability Resource Centre, set it up and enjoy your event.
