Green Office Certification

May 23rd, 2017

Green Office Certification

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.


The Student Sustainability Initiative and Center for Civic Engagement were awarded the Bronze Green Office Certification on April 13, 2017. Bronze
