Meet the BSD Green Team

In 2012, Business Services initiated a Green Team whose members represent a cross section of the Divisional units and function much like the faculty & staff Eco-Reps serve the campus.  Individuals represent their departments at team meetings, identify opportunities to make their group/work area greener, coordinate any green initiatives in their departments and serve as communication conduits for environmental sustainability initiatives.

An early effort by the team was to achieve Green Office certification for the Central Office Suite at 3401 Walnut Street. That effort was successful with BSD achieving Level 4 Certification - the highest certification possible and the third office on campus to achieve this level. This effort followed the work of Penn Transit which achieved Level Three Certification for its offices at the South Bank. Other offices in the Division are working on being certified so stay tuned for more developments around this effort. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

In addition to monthly meetings the BSD Green Team publishes a newsletter full of helpful tips on sustainability topics such as energy conservation, recycling, etc.
