Now a program of the Office of Sustainability, Green Offices is a points-based certification process that empowers members of UT faculty and staff to elicit change in their work space. Green Offices seeks to exemplify the University’s sustainability policy, commitment to sustainable development, environmental stewardship and social welfare. Every participating office will gain access to a special Green Offices logo to display on official correspondence as well as introductory freebies. After achieving each level of certification, your office will receive an award to display your achievements and progress in the Green Offices program.

What started in the CEC as tailgate recycle services has turned into a robust waste diversion program within UT Athletics.
“Since 2014, Texas Athletics has partnered with UT’s Office of Sustainability and the Campus Environmental Center in overseeing the Sustainability Squad. The Sustainability Squad is a volunteer group that monitors compost and recycling bins, promotes sustainability and educates fans about Athletics’ Zero Waste 2017 initiative. Our green-shirted squad members are a recognizable part of Texas game days and are helping motivate fans to achieve Zero Waste by 2017!” (from sustainability.utexas.edu)
