What is the Green Office Certification?

The Green Office Certification Program is aimed at highlighting offices/departments that have showcased efficient and responsible use of the university's resources. It also encourages students, faculty, and staff to make their offices and workspaces more sustainable. Any office may choose to participate in the informal review process and interview to determine what your office is doing currently to be more sustainable, and what you might do to make more progress towards sustainability. Once the process is complete, qualifying offices will rewarded at different levels depending on their current sustainability progress.
