Green Office Certification

As University of Colorado Boulder faculty and staff, we have a prominent role in both the local and global community.  The CU Green Office Certification Program enables all departments to actively contribute to sustainability successes on campus.

The steps of Green Office Certification are:

  • Appoint an Eco-Leader
  • Complete a Verification Visit.  This takes approximately 30 minutes and is done by the Green Office Program Coordinator with the Department's Eco-Leader.
  • Review a compiled list of gaps or areas that could use improvement and appropriate recommendations.  
  • Hold one one-hour presentation on transportation, energy and water conservation, environmentally responsible purchasing, and recycling and waste reduction at a department meeting for all staff/faculty.

Certified offices and departments receive recognition in a press release and a certificate at the campus sustainability awards ceremony at the end of each year. A Green Office logo will be available for posting on any appropriate printed materials and website.

If you are interested in pursuing the Green Office Certification for your department or if you have questions, please email: greenoffice@colorado.edu
