Green Office Program

The Green Office Program in Mears Hours created a Ditch-Your-Trash-Can initiative that other offices have begun to emulate (Thanks, Katherine Myers!)

Green Offices is a voluntary program which aims to increase the sustainability of workspaces at Williams. Learn how to make your office more sustainable and tell us what sustainable practices you’re already engaging in by completing the Green Offices checklist.

The program has three levels across seven sustainability categories. Each level is designed to further increase the sustainability of your office. Within each sustainability category, there are a number of criteria through which you can assess your office.

The sustainability categories are:

  1. Energy Conservation
  2. Waste Minimization
  3. Purchasing
  4. Meetings & Events
  5. Recycling
  6. Engagement
  7. Safe, Healthy, & Equitable Work Environment

In the Spring of 2018, OIT, OCR, and the Center for Foreign Languages, Literatures, & Cultures joined the Green Office program.
