Green Office Relaunch Information Session
B.Y.O.M (Bring Your Own Mug) Event
The Office of Sustainability is pleased to announce we will be relaunching our Green Office Program.
Our office will be hosting an information session to discuss the changes in the program and how to join. All staff and faculty interested in joining the program are encouraged to come. Offices who have already been certified in the program are also encouraged to attend and learn how they will be grandfathered into the new version. There will be light refreshments and snacks, and in the spirit of sustainability this event is B.Y.O.M (Bring Your Own Mug) to avoid plastic waste.
The Green Office Program is a voluntary and competitive program that rewards staff and faculty for adopting more sustainable practices. The program seeks to:
- Help offices understand how sustainable their current operations are
- Train members and provide resources on ways offices can operate more efficiently and sustainably
- Reward and recognize offices for reducing their ecological footprint
The program has been revamped to include a more comprehensive list of sustainable actions, a point system with different levels of certification, and a fun level of competition between teams.
