Green Office program

The university's Green Office program will help support, foster and showcase staff and faculty initiatives, both big and small to create a sustainable office space.

The program will highlight your office's 'green' achievements and track progress while suggesting tips for areas of improvement to create a greener office space and support campus sustainability. 

Green Office Program Ambassadors for each department will be supported to learn, develop and share sustainability-related ideas and initiatives, contribute to making a positive impact on campus and receive a certification for their departments overall sustainability achievements.
