Congratulations to the Oregon State University Center for Teaching and Learning on earning the bronze-level Green Office Certification!
Thank you to the dedicated employees of the CTL that contributed to gathering and inputting data for the survey. We are thrilled to see their interest in ‘greening’ their office space!
Some highlights from their results include:
- Reusable kitchenware and silverware for employees to use.
- Utilizing OSU Surplus to find and dispose of furniture and office supplies.
- Signage around the office encouraging water conservation and waste reduction.
The Center for Teaching and Learning joins the eight other OSU offices that have received a certification so far and it is a strong showing! We can’t wait to see how they plan to improve their score!
About the 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 is also intended to provide new ideas for easy steps your office can take to reduce your environmental footprint and carbon emissions.
It takes the shape of an online Qualtrics survey that assesses current office practices under five categories: Utilities, Waste Management, Office Purchasing, Transportation and Travel, and Outreach, Engagement, and Professional Development.
Possible Certification Levels:
- Bronze (50-59%)
- Silver (60-69%)
- Gold (70-79%)
- Platinum (80+%)
