Sustainable Office Certification Program

In this Section

It’s NEW and IMPROVED – Join us to learn about and improve sustainable practices in our offices. 

Clarkson’s Sustainable Office Certification Program is a challenge-based program that provides incentives for faculty and staff members to learn about sustainability and apply it to their office practices. Last year, 34 Clarkson’s offices and a total of over 200 employees were involved. In 2015, our goal is to engage at least 50 departments in the Sustainable Office Certification Program!
Clarkson’s Sustainability Goals
The Sustainable Office Certification Program is one way that we can all help to work towards President Collins’  goal of including sustainability in everything we do on campus (April 2010). This program works to directly minimize Clarkson’s environmental footprint by increasing the efficiency of our use of material goods and energy. Operating our campus in a more sustainable way also provides a great example for our students!
What are you waiting for? Help fulfill Clarkson’s sustainability goals by participating in the Sustainable Office Certification Program!
