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

All new GMC employees receive access to an online employee guide, which contains helpful information from a range of departments. The major sustainability systems on campus that are applicable to new employees are outlined in the guide, including carsharing and carpooling options, zero-sort recycling, e-waste recycling, composting, the reuse stores (Freepo and Freestore), and the Green Job Corps program.

Chartwells and DTZ employees (The two major contractors on campus) receive a sustainability guide that outlines what sustainability means, what the major sustainability initiatives are on campus, and where people can go if they have additional questions. This guide was created by the sustainability office and a copy of it is kept on file in the sustainability office.
