The iCAP 2020 objective 7.1 is to "Enhance the overall culture of sustainability on campus, and increase the number of certifica-tions issued through the Certified Greener Campus Program by 20% each year from FY20 to FY24." The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is iSEE.
Many university employees want to set an example for students by taking environmental action at work, but they aren’t sure where to start. The Certified Green Office Program is designed to identify simple, inexpensive actions you can take in your workspace.
We invite you and your office to make a pledge to reduce your use of resources and improve the overall sustainability of your office’s day-to-day practices.
Small actions make a big difference when many take those small actions. The Illinois Climate Action Plan (iCAP) 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. With your help, we can reduce the environmental impact of this campus and strengthen its position as a national leader in sustainability.
