What is the Green Office Program?
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 impact
The Green Office Program is designed to cover an array of topics and situations applicable to the various offices and departments across campus. Specific areas include:
· Education & Outreach
· Innovative Practices
The program has been 100% redesigned to incorporate the most recent best practices and relevant information. All participants will have access to a hybrid program and a plethora of resources to help your department achieve the best score possible.
Did you say ‘score?’
Yes! This newest iteration of the program is set-up to foster some friendly competition. There are 4 tiers of Green Offices: Green, Gold, Silver, and Bronze. Every office that competes will also receive some recognition on the new Green Office Hub (coming in late March). The hub will allow users to explore buildings and departments on campus to understand where others are on their sustainability journey.
