Green Events

The aim of Green Event Certification is to encourage, recognize and celebrate the voluntary, sustainable efforts that event organizers have taken to reduce the environmental, social and financial costs of their event. The certification also serves as an opportunity to inform and engage event attendees of the sustainable initiatives taking place at Yale.

Certification is simple and free to all organizers, just follow these two steps:

  1. Refer to the Green Event Planning Checklist below to obtain tips and ideas on how to plan your event sustainably.
  2. Complete the online survey prior to your event. You can submit the survey after your event as well, but it is preferable to submit before.
