A brief description of the employee educators program (1st program):

The Green Office Program is a sustainability checklist for offices and departments on campus that covers 5 dimensions of sustainability: Energy conservation, waste prevention and purchasing, recycling, transportation and participation. Offices and departments agree to meet the criteria for one of three levels of sustainability. Silver squirrel, Gold Squirrel and Green Squirrel. Green Squirrel being the highest.

The Committee on Environmental Responsibility advertises the program, and departmental employees volunteer to serve as coordinators/liaisons to the program.

Employees that become Green Office Certified receive a tutorial in the program by the Green Office Liaison at that department. This tutorial educates employees on core sustainability aspects affecting their department, including elements of responsible product sourcing, ways to reduce energy consumption, and local waste and recycling practices, etc. These employees then serve as local experts and sustainability resources for their colleagues.
