Duke Green Event Certification

BannerSustainable Duke offers a Duke Green Event Certification for event organizers.  To certify your event, complete this Green Event Certification checklist.

Organizers are encouraged to complete the certification at the beginning of their event planning process, as many of the items on the checklist are related to initial planning.  At a minimum, please submit your checklist at least two weeks prior to the event. 

Certified events receive the Green Event Certification logo, which event organizers may use freely on materials related to the event to promote green efforts.   Event organizers may also request to loan the Duke Green Event banner from Sustainable Duke to display at their event.

After earning Duke Green Event Certification, your event is eligible to receive a free carbon offset from the Duke Carbon Offsets Initiative to make your event carbon neutral! 

If you have any questions about Green Event Certification, please contact sustainability@duke.edu.
