FROM: Office of Sustainability

The Tufts Office of Sustainability is pleased to announce the re-launch of its Green Office Certification Challenge, which supports, promotes, and recognizes offices across the University that are engaging in sustainable practices. Offices may achieve one of four levels of certification (Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum) based on the score they receive on a checklist of green office criteria. The program features an interactive Excel checklist that provides users with instant feedback on their performance and ideas for improvement. 

All offices that get Green Office certified at any level prior to May 4, 2018 will be invited to a special awards ceremony and reception with President Monaco this summer. To get started, register for the challenge.  Your office can then start guiding itself through the Green Office Checklist. If you choose the guided 12-week option, you will receive weekly emails (starting February 12th) containing several action items for you to implement in your office that week.  This will help ensure certification and completion of the Green Office Challenge by May 4. Click here to sign up for the Green Office Certification Challenge! 

For more information, please contact Shoshana Blank, Education & Outreach Coordinator at the Office of Sustainability.
