Campus Environmental Sustainability Team

cest

In August 2009, the Campus Environmental Sustainability Team (CEST) became an official NC State Administrative Advisory Committee charged the following the objectives:

  • Setting the  direction for  campus sustainability through strategic planning
  • Creating Working Groups that allow participation in the decision-making process by anyone on campus
  • Providing monitoring, communication and accountability for adherence to the Sustainability Strategic Plan and related commitments, including updating annual tactics and tracking progress toward goals.

Although members are appointed, CEST is structured so that any person can participate in the decision-making through eight Working Groups, which were formed around the focus areas established in the 2006 Campus Environmental Sustainability Assessment.

CEST Working Groups

  • Academics and Research
  • Community and Culture
  • Buildings
  • Energy and Water
  • Land Use
  • Materials and Purchasing
  • Transportation
  • Waste Reduction & Recycling

To join a Working Group send an email to sustainability@ncsu.edu.
