Office spaces contribute greatly to the energy used and waste generated on the Virginia Tech campus.
The Green Office Certification Program gives employees and graduate students the tools they need to create a greener working space on campus. Departments get points for taking sustainable actions in their personal and shared office spaces, and then get recognized for their efforts.
Anyone who has an office on campus may participate. Generally, groups of individuals who share common spaces (kitchens, break rooms, mail rooms, or printing rooms) are considered an “office”. Graduate students are encouraged to participate as a lab or research group as well.
