The greyscale bar displays the scores (in quartiles) of all institutions rated under this version of STARS that are the same basic type as the institution featured in the report (e.g., Associate, Baccalaureate, Doctoral, or Master’s). Hovering over the bar reveals the following:
- 1st quartile score (75% of institutions scored above this figure)
- Median (or 2nd quartile) score (50% of institutions scored above this figure)
- 3rd quartile score (25% of institutions scored above this figure)
- Top score
Missing lower quartiles indicate the prevalence of institutions that earned zero points, e.g., if 25% of institutions earned 0 points, no 1st quartile will display.
Missing bars indicate that an insufficient number of reports have been published under this version of STARS to calculate quartiles.
The quartiles are recalculated nightly to reflect newly published reports.

While quantitative expenditure data for OP-12 and OP-14 were not available in time for this report, Wentworth has provided information on its green purchasing program below:
Wentworth has had a green purchasing policy in place since 2010. The full policy can be found here:
OP-12: Electronics Purchasing
Wentworth's green purchasing policy requires EPEAT Bronze or higher certification for all eligible electronics.
OP-13: Cleaning & Janitorial Purchasing
Wentworth's cleaning contract specifies a green cleaning program meeting the requirements of the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance Standard. This program takes a holistic approach to environmental, health, and safety including training, waste minimization, and use of biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning solvents. Managers from the contracted cleaning company report regularly to Physical Plant on various aspects of their program.
OP-14: Office Paper Purchasing
Through its preferred office supply vendor, Wentworth purchases recycled paper consisting of at least 30% post-consumer content. The Director of Purchasing has worked with Wentworth's office supply vendor to ensure that recycled paper is the default selection for campus procurement.
