Current Activities:

A number of offices are pursuing Green Office Certifications, and those that already have, are continuing to make changes to increase their scores.





A few examples of the Green Team's successes include:

  • For Earth Day 2014, the team partnered with the School of Education Green Team to collect surplus office supplies that were then donated to city school teachers.
  • Collections boxes were setup throughout Krieger Hall for recycling pens, energy bar wrappers, and ink cartridges.
  • The Mathematics Department recently installed power management settings on all of its computers.
  • The Center for Language Education removed its 5-gallon bottled water dispenser and replaced it with a Quench filtered water system.
  • An onboarding document was created for Krieger Hall, which provides a quick sustainability overview for new employees and students in the building.



Green Office Certifications:

Offices can pursue Green Office Certification by completing a sustainability checklist. A score up to 5 feathers can be earned and offices represented by Green Team members are listed below.

Ideas in Action

Think before you print.

Office paper is highly recyclable, but a lot gets wasted. Waste reduction is more cost-effective than recycling because it reduces the amount of material that needs to be collected, transported and processed.
