'Zero Waste Initiative' Wins Wells Fargo Green Award

UNC Charlotte’s "Zero Waste Initiative" for Richardson Stadium was named the 2014 Wells Fargo Green Award winner at the annual Charlotte Chamber Energy Summit. The University was recognized in the large business category for "its impressive efforts" to eliminate waste in the 16,000-seat stadium.

The 2014 Wells Fargo Green Awards are presented to "member companies who have incorporated innovative, sustainable practices in the products they produce, the services they provide and within the culture of their company."

The dining services team and Chartwells sourced products that could be fully recycled, such as beverage cups, lids and straws. In addition, the team negotiated packaging alternatives with food providers/ national brands and gave them the opportunity to partner in the initiative. Additional time was invested in "waste-training" community volunteers who worked concession pods during games, and dining services and Chartwells supported the use of water bottle filling stations even though this would directly and negatively impact beverage sales.
