The Green Team Organizer serves as a liaison between their department and the IU Office of Sustainability. Leaders plan strategically, communicate with the appropriate parties, and mobilize other team members in order to advance sustainable actions in their departments.
Staff and faculty in all positions from all levels of management and operations can be a part of the Green Team. The more representation throughout the department, the better! Additionally, having members with a knowledge of building operations, departmental finance, departmental management, or ties to departmental student organizations will help teams in their efforts to achieve realistic and meaningful goals.
After you register your Green Team, you can begin pursuing certifications. The certifications are completely voluntary, but are designed to give Green Teams guidance and unique ideas for creating a more sustainable working environment. The more items on the certification checklist that your team completes, the higher ranking your Green Team will be!
