FACULTY & STAFF OPPORTUNITIES

The Office of Sustainability offers opportunities for faculty and staff at each Hopkins campus to get involved in sustainability.

GREEN TEAM NETWORK

The Green Team Network includes passionate, active members of the JHU community who advocate for more sustainable practices in their workspace. Members are invited to participate in monthly Eco-Smart Challenges to be more sustainable and bi-monthly Eco-Smart Outings to learn more about campus efforts and network with similarly-minded staff, faculty, and grad students at JHU. Join the team!

GREEN OFFICE CERTIFICATION

The Green Office Certification is a comprehensive checklist that serves as a blueprint for reducing environmental impact, offers recognition for your existing efforts, and helps identify new opportunities for your office. Based on points earned from the checklist, certified offices can earn a rating of one to five feathers.

GREEN LAB CHAMPIONS

Green Lab Champions are inquisitive researchers who are committed to helping reduce the environmental impact of their lab’s operations by coordinating recycling efforts, assessing opportunities for energy and water conservation and disseminating information about green practices to their fellow lab occupants. Essentially they are the go-to people when it comes to greening your lab. To become a Green Lab Champion or to schedule a Green Lab presentation, contact us at sustainability@jhu.edu.

GREEN EVENT PLANNERS

Whether it’s a small scale office gathering, or a campus-wide extravaganza there are a variety of steps you can take to reduce the impact of your event. From identifying opportunities to reduce waste or energy consumption, to thinking about marketing, giveaways, partners, transportation and facilities, the Office of Sustainability wants to support you in hosting a more sustainable event. 

One of the biggest areas of waste from an event results from catering, which is why the Homewood Recycling Office created the Free Food Alert system. Event planners can sign up to create alerts, and subscribers will receive alerts when there is leftover food from an event on campus.

For additional strategies to green your event, please refer to our Green Events Planning GuideSmall improvements trickle up!
