Description

You have the power to reduce the environmental impact of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) is proud to present the latest edition of the Certified Green Office Program, its initiative to engage the University community in a campuswide commitment to sustainability.

We invite you and your office to make a pledge to reduce your use of resources and improve overall sustainability in the day-to-day practices of your office. Small actions make a big difference when many take those small actions. The Illinois Climate Action Plan outlines campus’ plans to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, and we believe everyone can play a part in achieving that goal through their day to day actions.

So far, 57 offices have participated in the program, in which iSEE connected with more than 1,200 employees who contributed their part to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. With your help, we can reduce the environmental impacts of this campus and strengthen its position as a national leader in sustainability.
