Green Office Certification

The Green Office Certification process is a point-based, self-assessment checklist which individuals or entire offices can use to assess their current practices and earn recognition for their efforts to reduce their daily impact on the environment. The individual lifestyle choices impact the college's sustainability goals and the wider Colorado Springs community. This program provides a framework for creating sustainable habits in the following areas: Energy, Waste, Involvement, Technology, Purchasing, and Events.
