Does the institution make available training and/or other professional development opportunities in sustainability to all staff at least once per year?:

A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :
The Office of Sustainability Initiatives runs a Sustainability Representatives program in which each academic and research building designates a staff or faculty member to participate in outreach activities around sustainability. Reps then schedule times to train and teach their building occupants about recycling, energy and water saving strategies, sustainable food issues, and other relevant topics. Reps assemble monthly for educational and planning meetings. As recycling and compost programs are installed in buildings, offices, and departments, waste trainings are provided by the Office of Sustainability Initiatives and Emory Recycles to enure that building occupants understand Emory's program and its components. These are scheduled as needed, and always available upon request.
