About the Green Office Program

The Green Office Program (GOP) is an ongoing initiative led by the Sustainability Office that helps UWinnipeg maintain high environmental performance standards.  The program offers voluntary office sustainability assessments along with trainings, information resources and educational opportunities, all in an effort to help staff green their workspaces and make sustainable choices on and off campus.

The three core objectives of the GOP are:

  1. Establish an effective approach to monitoring and improving sustainability performance at the office level to help meet our LEED O&M targets pertaining to waste diversion, purchasing, energy consumption and transportation.

  2. Encourage all departments on campus to engage wholeheartedly in sustainable practices and to embrace “sustainability”  as part of our campus identity by offering tools and resources that enable staff, faculty and students to take leadership.

  3. Provide open lines of communication with all departments for sharing ideas, events and opportunities relating to sustainability across campus, thereby encouraging action that benefits our campus and the wider community.
