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 consists of completing a questionnaire that targets waste minimization and resource reduction. 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.  Get a head start by reviewing each category of the questionnaire and being familiar with your office's sustainable practices. To determine where your office would rank, add up all of your affirmative answers (Bronze=20+, Silver= 30+, Gold= 40+, Platinum= 50+).
