Name of the campaign:
Green Office Network

A brief description of the campaign:

The Green Office Network is the primary faculty and staff sustainability engagement program. The purpose of the network is to better understand office behavior and practices on a day-to-day basis, build community and foster discussion about how to improve sustainability on the individual and office level, and empower staff to make positive, healthy changes. The Office of Sustainability engages Green Leaders through trainings, workshops, and events. The program includes a Green Office Certification. The certification is awarded to offices that complete certain sustainability behaviors in their offices, and there are four possible levels of certification. Offices are re-certified on an annual basis, and are encouraged to add to their sustainable practices in doing so.


A brief description of the measured positive impact(s) of the campaign:

Since the launch of the certification in summer 2014, over 65 offices have been certified, with additional offices in the process of becoming certified currently.
