The attached file and following links are reference materials for the Zero Waste SWATeam, for developing draft objectives for the 2020 iCAP.
Every few years iSEE submits data to the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), in the Sustainability Tracking and Assessment Reporting System (STARS). Our campus is STARS gold, and we would like to aim for platinum. This is a resource as you consider 2020 iCAP objectives.
