Green Office Certification

Our campus Sustainability Office is promoting a Green Office Certification Program – no reason why any library couldn’t follow these same ideas and procedures as well. We are completing by department in the library since we are a large library.   The goal is to help the University work toward carbon neutrality and reaching its sustainability goals.  These resources help guide us through the process, and help us rethink what we do, using their ample resources and tools –  and you can make it sort of a competition as well to get folks motivated. We all work off this spreadsheet with points given for each item, categorized by area. There are some very good instructions here:

The office provides some great resource guides too. I’m sharing here as I’m sure others could benefit and get ideas for your own library from this list:
