A brief description of how sustainability is included in new employee orientation:

Every month, or as needed, Human Resources hosts a new employee
orientation that includes a segment about sustainability initiatives at
Bowdoin. These initiatives include Bowdoin's Carbon Nuetrality
Commitment and Bowdoin's zero-sort recycling program. Additionally, this
orientation educates new employees about Bowdoin's Zipcar program, the
Building Dashboard Energy Monitoring System, and other relevant green
initiatives on campus. These orientation programs no longer include a
bound paper employee manual, which considerably reduces paper usage.
