Green Office Certification Program

The Office of Sustainability is thrilled to announce our upcoming Green Office Certification Program. Are you ready to make your office more environmentally friendly? 

The Green Office Certification Program is a voluntary, self-guided initiative aimed at promoting sustainable practices within Kennesaw State University. This program places a strong emphasis on conserving energy and water, reducing waste through recycling, hosting sustainable events, and fostering a healthier work environment.

By participating in this program, KSU workplaces can not only reduce waste but also enjoy significant cost savings through practical sustainability measures. Collaborating with the Office of Sustainability (OOS), offices all across the University are encouraged to assess their current practices and establish a timeline and action plan for achieving Green Office certification. Throughout this journey, the Office of Sustainability will be there to offer tools, support and guidance every step of the way. 

If you have any questions about this program, please email us at
