UW Green Certification Programs!

Green Certification Programs at the University of Washington are recognition programs intended to reduce the environmental impact of various spaces across campus by educating students, faculty, and staff about sustainable practices. The programs provide an evaluation framework with resources to implement the practices within their spaces, in alignment with strategies laid out in the UW Climate Action Plan. We currently offer Programs to Certify offices, laboratories, Greek Houses, and Residence Hall rooms. Learn more about these programs.
