The Green Office Certification is intended to help staff and faculty improve the sustainability of their office space through simple actions that we have outlined in the Certification Worksheet.

How the Certification System Works

Each action listed in the Certification Worksheet has been assigned a point value based on its perceived difficulty, benefits, and cost. The lowest level of certification (bronze) is achieved when 20 points are accrued, with each additional 10 points earning the next highest level of certification (silver, gold, and platinum). Options also exist to certify entire departments or groups of offices.
