Green Certification Programs at the University of Washington are recognition programs intended to reduce the environmental impact of various spaces across campus by educating students, faculty, and staff about sustainable practices. The programs provide an evaluation framework with resources to implement the practices within their spaces, in alignment with strategies laid out in the UW Climate Action Plan.
Green Office Certification Program
The Green Office Certification Program recognizes offices that implement sustainable practices and behaviors within their unit. The certification is based on work place practices in action areas such as energy conservation, green meetings, paper conservation, publications and marketing communications, purchasing, waste diversion, transportation, and more.
Green Laboratory Certification Program
The Green Laboratory Certification Program recognizes laboratories at UW that operate and behave sustainably within their laboratory space. The certification is based on laboratory practices involving action areas such as energy usage, communication, waste, chemical usage, water usage, work-related travel, and more.
Green Room Certification Program
UW Bothell has just brought the Green Room Certification Program to Husky Village! The SEED Green Endorsement Program has been adapted to also recognize the great stewardship that many of our residents are practicing as members of our residential communities.
