DCVB First to Earn Green Plus Certification

The Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau has earned Green Plus certification from the Institute for Sustainable Development. Celebrating its 20th anniversary as Durham’s official community marketing agency, DCVB is the first organization of its type in the nation to be certified and just the second in Durham.

Green Plus is designed for small organizations and covers variables in three areas including rigorous standards for how an organization treats not only the planet but its workforce and how it performs overall. Both Duke University in Durham and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill partnered with the Institute to roll the certification out nationwide.
