About the Resource Package

The Green Office Program supports sustainable workplace practices with tools and resources linking you to environmental learning and action-taking opportunities across campus. You can use this resource package to find annual sustainability events, improve your office’s environmental performance, and contact  sustainability staff directly. Each chapter focuses on a specific area of campus sustainability and includes a comprehensive checklist of best practices followed by resources, information and tips that will help your office reach your greening goals.
