PACES Green Office Certification recognizes departments moving toward sustainability. We benchmark a department’s current ecological practices, raise awareness about campus policies, prescribe new recommendations, and offer resources to help implement them. We also connect departments with knowledgeable stakeholders that can provide technical assistance to help implement new practices. In the past, PACES Green Office Certification Program has helped departments save $45/year per computer by changing monitor settings and increased waste diversion rates from 47% to 60%. The PACES assessment process is designed to be time efficient and convenient for your department. The assessment process is conducted based on the department’s availability and preferred timeline.
