GreenPace Award Nominations
It takes a commitment from all of us to create and maintain a more sustainable Pace. That’s why, every year, we recognize the students, faculty, and staff who go above and beyond to make that happen!
The GreenPace Award recognizes individuals, units, departments, and organizations that develop innovative programs and services assist Pace in meeting its commitment to sustainable practices. These practices can cover many aspects of sustainability including but not limited to energy and water; recycling and waste reduction; transportation; dining services; purchasing; green building and landscaping; and campus culture and academics.
Nominate today! The deadline is Friday, March 29.
The GreenPace Award is a program of the GreenPace Sustainability Committee. The Committee is comprised of university-wide members working to enhance and promote sustainability throughout all of Pace’s campuses. Learn more about their efforts.
