Green Office Program

Green Office Resource

Utilize the Harvard Office for Sustainability’s Green Office Resource in order to implement or sustainable practices in your office or department. Utilize the University-wide Green Office Certification Program that is arranged into a series of four levels – ranging from “Leaf 1″ to “Leaf 4.” Presentations are available online for use in departmental or all-staff meetings, or you can schedule a Green Office workshop with the Longwood Sustainability Coordinator from Harvard’s Office for Sustainability. The Certification Checklists – arranged by both Leaf level (one through four) and topic area (energy, purchasing, waste reduction, recycling, transportation, publications, kitchens, participation, and events) – include numerous step-by-step fact sheets that make it easy to enable sustainable change!

 

We recommend forming a departmental green team in order to delegate Green Office Certification tasks and share responsibilities. For additional information (or to schedule a Green Office workshop in your department), visit www.green.harvard.edu/green-office or email ecoop@hsph.harvard.edu.
