     Welcome to the Charlotte Green Initiative!

The purpose of the Charlotte Green Initiative (CGI) committee is to allocate funds from the university’s Student Green Fee to projects that will enable UNC Charlotte to use renewable energy, become energy efficient, and operate in a sustainable manner.  This committee is a student-led initiative that will create campus-wide awareness, education, and consciousness for the students, faculty, staff, and visitors regarding sustainability.

CGI is a student-led initiative that collects a $1 per semester Green Fee from each full-time UNC Charlotte student.  These funds are allocated to projects that will enable UNC Charlotte to grow and operate in an environmentally sustainable manner.

To find out what we're currently working on visit the projects page. 

CGI was established in 2008 and aims to create campus-wide awareness, education, and consciousness of environmental sustainability among students, faculty, staff, and visitors.

Do you have an idea to make campus more sustainable?  We want to hear it, and the best part is, CGI could provide the funding!
