The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USG Corporation (NYSE: USG) have announced Arizona State University as the winner of the 2016 USG NACDA Sustainability Award. ASU was chosen from a pool of three finalists and received the award for its work on Sun Devil Stadium and the Weatherup Center.
The Sustainability Award will be officially presented to Arizona State on Thursday, Nov. 10, at the award-winning facility Sun Devil Stadium, during ASU’s football game against Utah.
“Arizona State embraces sustainability as a core value campus wide, and we’re honored to receive the USG NACDA Sustainability Award, an award that recognizes ASU’s commitment to promoting sustainable practices,” said Ray Anderson, vice president for university athletics at Arizona State. “Athletics is a prominent component of the University and we are proud to leverage that exposure to advance ASU’s key initiatives and promote sustainable change.”
The USG NACDA Sustainability Award was designed to recognize NACDA member institutions across all divisions, honoring athletics directors and their universities for incorporating sustainable practices and materials into their athletics facilities. A seven-person committee consisting of athletics directors across the country and representatives from USG and NACDA aided in selecting Arizona State as this year’s award winner.
