Sustainable Office Certification: Certified Offices

Offices that complete Sustainable Office Certification receive a framed certificate acknowledging their success and are recognized at the annual Western Sustainability Awards reception. View the introductory presentation, and read the 3-step certification process to get involved.

In each department, a volunteer facilitator completed a questionnaire, scoring the office for actions already in place and actions initiated during the certification process. Each action is valued at 1-6 points, according to cost, impact and required effort. Additional points were earned for innovative actions developed by and adopted as standard practice within the office or department.
