Workshop Content

Sustainability is an expanding field and a serious commitment at Duke. Becoming the sustainability expert in your office provides a competitive advantage in the workplace while helping the planet. In addition to providing ample time for discussion and networking with other staff about their challenges and successes with office greening, the workshop covers:

  • sustainability efforts at Duke University;
  • personal changes you can make to reduce your environmental footprint at work;
  • guiding your department through the Duke Green Workplace Certification;
  • starting and leading a green team; and
  • resources provided by Sustainable Duke to assist you in office greening.

In order for an office to receive the Duke Green Workplace Certification, at least one staff member from the office must attend this workshop.  While only one staff member from the office is required to attend the workshop, we encourage all interested staff members to attend. 

Sustainable Duke will communicate with staff members who attend this workshop to provide further resources and guidance throughout the process of greening their workplace.
