For a few hours each month, green team staff members serve as their department’s resource for adopting sustainable practices that contribute to university goals. Some areas of focus include green purchasing, energy conservation measures, commuting, waste reduction and recycling efforts. These leaders guide campus sustainability staff in providing necessary resources and support for departments.
