Green Office Certification
What is Green Office Certification?
Green office certification is a way for employees to get recognition for leading a sustainable lifestyle on campus on the job. There are three levels of certification each more rigorous than the previous.
How can I get my office green certified?
There are several steps to getting your office green certified. There are three cumulative levels; the office must become level 1 green certified before becoming level 2 and 3 certified. Once the office is level 1 green certified you may apply to become level 2 green certified and then level 3 green certified. Below are the guidelines for each level.
Note: Green Office Certification can be done on an individual or whole department/administrative office level. If you would like to pursue just an individual office certification complete the requirements below. If you are interested in pursuing whole department/administrative office certification you will provide us with the names and emails of your co-workers in the application form and we will send them an email inviting them to participate in the green office certification program. If 80% of the members of your department/administrative office participate then you will receive full green office certification.
