Creating a More Sustainable Campus, One Office at a Time.
What Is the Green Office Program?
The Green Office Program is an initiative to develop more sustainable practices in various USU offices and departments. The program involves collaboration to make changes in offices with the help of the Green Office coordinator and the office’s Green Team by completing the certification process. Throughout the certification, areas that need improvement as well as areas where the offices are succeeding are brought to light. From there, the office’s green team and coordinator set goals of how to improve further.
How Does My Office Become Certified?
Contact the Green Office Program with your intentions to have your office certified by registering and filling out the pre assessment form for your office here. Once you've done this, create a Green Team.
