UNC Greensboro


Get Certified

The Green Room and Green Office certification programs are tools for our student residents, faculty, and staff to help further the culture of sustainability at UNCG. By completing a checklist to confirm your practice of various eco-conscientious and mindful actions, you can measure and share your commitment to a sustainable lifestyle. All individuals or departments who complete the program receive a certificate of participation highlighting your accomplishment and dedication.

Green Room

Students, participate in the Green Room program and you will receive a canvas bag (while supplies last), a certificate of recognition, and will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a gift bag of eco-friendly goodies that will help you live a more sustainable lifestyle. The raffle will take place near the end of each semester, dates TBA. Winners will be contacted via email. At this time, the Green Room program is only open to student residents.

Green Office

The Green Office program is best utilized at the department level, but is also open to individual employees. Departments that wish to participate should designate an individual to oversee the application process. An administrator who is familiar with and runs day-to-day operations (i.e., handles facility needs, makes supply purchases and catering orders, etc.) for the department will probably need to be involved.

All participants must complete their submissions via the online surveys. However, the Office of Sustainability has created PDF versions of the surveys for you to review in preparation of your submission. Participating departments must complete the Green Office Departmental Survey and distribute the Green Office Employee Checklist to all employees who wish to participate in the program with their department.

Any individual employee whose department does not wish to participate in the program may complete the Green Office Employee Checklist, which focuses more on individual actions.
