Green Office Program

The USD Green Office Certification Program is a joint project between the University of San Diego and San Diego Gas & Electric. The program is designed to help offices on USD’s campus become more sustainable in their daily actions. The Green Office Certification Program provides task lists that minimize an office’s environmental impact by targeting two primary objectives: resource reduction and waste minimization. By participating in this program, offices help USD lower its ecological footprint and set a positive example for other offices at USD, as a model of leadership, initiative, and sustainable thinking.

See the list below of certified offices from across campus.  If your office is not yet on the list, contact the Office of Sustainability to start the certification process.
