The Office of Sustainability works with faculty, staff and students to measure progress, propose solutions, initiate changes, develop skills, and share experiences that contribute to environmental, social and financial dimensions of sustainability.

The Office of Sustainability works to:

  • Lead initiatives in zero waste, responsible purchasing, and achieving carbon-neutral campus by 2050
  • Partner on events to raise awareness of campus and community issues, programs and solutions, including Campus Sustainability Week in Fall and Earth Month in Spring
  • Support students, student organizations, and departments that propose projects to the Charlotte Green Initiative at cgi.charlotte.edu
  • Help faculty address sustainability topics in courses, through workshops, presentations, tours and initiatives to use campus as a learning lab
  • Coordinate research on campus operations that lead to lower environmental impacts, improved social outcomes, and reduced costs
  • Hire students to engage the campus community through communication and events, to measure and report our progress on sustainability goals, and to study social and technical innovations
  • Organize volunteers to address litter, uphold our Zero Waste Stadium pledge, plant trees, and maintain student and staff gardens
