Green Office

The choices we make in our work environments impact the natural environment. By making smarter choices, we can integrate sustainability principles into day-to-day activities on campus. Our Green Office program provides tools, support, and guidance to help make your campus life more sustainable. 

About Green Office Certification

Offices are great places for teamwork, participation, and innovation. Departments and offices on campus represent a large portion of energy and material use, and production of waste on campus. Green Office Certification is a great tool for colleges and departments across campus to use that provides guidance and tools to help students, staff, and faculty adopt sustainable choices in the workplace that are good for people now and the generation to come.

How it works

  1. Register your department
  2. Post your Green Office Checklist and begin your self-assessment
  3. Request a training
