Green Office Certification

Earn points for greening your office! With Green Office Certification, you can learn how, and get the tools to:

  • Eliminate reliance on bottled water service
  • Transition your coffee service to all-compostable without added cost
  • Compost in your office

And more!

Sign up here to get started on this 2-step process.

Step 1: We'll work with you to set up a time for the undergraduate Brandeis Sustainability Ambassadors to meet with your office members, where they will present information about green office practices in the Green Office checklist, and answer questions. This could be a separate meeting, or a 20 minute segment of a regularly scheduled staff meeting, for example. 

Green Office checklist

Step 2: Score your office in the Green Office Checklist in column E, according to the "Points possible" in column D. The Brandeis Sustainability Ambassadors can assist you in filling out the checklist. Please contact sustainability@brandeis.edu for assistance. (Any item that is not applicable to your office will be automatically removed from the total possible points, so that the item(s) will not be held against you.)

After receiving your score, you'll receive a medal to post in your office!
