The Green Office Certification is a simple yet effective way for OSU faculty and staff to further their sustainability efforts and get recognition for their work. It’s also intended to provide ideas for steps your office can take to reduce your environmental footprint and carbon emissions. The Green Office Certification was created through a partnership between the Sustainability Office, Campus Recycling, and Transportation Services.
An online Qualtrics survey is used to assess an office’s practices in areas such as water, waste management, purchasing, transportation, and outreach. Upon completion, the survey will be scored. Bronze, silver, gold, and platinum are the four certification levels based on the score.
Currently, there are three certified offices on campus. The School of Psychological Science was awarded the Silver Green Office Certification on December 13, 2016.
We would love to help you get your office certified! To get started, please take this survey. Additionally, if you would like to see more tips on how your office can become more sustainable, visit our resources page here.
