A brief description of the employee educators program (1st program):
For decades, decentralized programs have emerged to help offices green their practices. The Office of Sustainability developed the Green Office (GO) Certification Program to unite these efforts under a common framework that recognizes University of Oregon offices that:

• Adopt best practices
• Commit to reducing impacts
• Measure their performance

The GO Scorecard tracks office sustainability across seven categories including: prerequisites, energy, materials management, purchasing, transportation, events, and disaster preparedness. Offices are awarded a bronze, silver, gold, or platinum level certification by completing and submitting a scorecard. The GO program is creating a network of office champions who are actively reducing the environmental impacts of their work and workplaces. Each fall, the Office of Sustainability provides orientation training for UO employees in administrative units responsible for office management.

A brief description of the employee educators program’s target audience (1st program):
This program targets university staff at the office level, with a focus on administrative and operations staff and faculty. Each office that participates assigns a Green Office facilitator who participates in a kick-off training and then educates other office staff to adopt green office practices.
