NRES Achieves Silver Certification in the Green Office Initiative

On Earth Day, NRES was recognized as a Silver Certified Green Office as part of the iSEE Certified Green Office Initiative! Accepting the award for the department was Dr. Kevin McSweeney. NRES team members were Manuel Colon, Dr. McSweeney, Lezli Cline, Martha Parish and Karen Claus.

There were twenty-four participating offices across campus, who all agreed to the five basic commitments to become a Certified Green Office: appoint a Sustainability Ambassador; adopt a sustainable travel policy; use 30% recycled-content and FSC-certified paper; identify, label and communicate the location of office recycling stations; and turn off and unplug all unnecessary electronics.

Thank you to everyone who helped in the effort to achieve this certification, by committing to reduce our department's carbon footprint!!
