We are pleased to announce two Green Department re-certifications last month – both Capital Projects (down on Uni­versity Avenue) and the UC Police Department submitted and qualified for the highest award bracket (Green).

Capital Projects re-certified with 22 points for initiatives that include using 100% recycled content copy paper, employing power save modes on copiers and computers, composting, having a reuse station, certifying a green event, installing digital signage that includes sustainability information, greening their fleet, working to reduce paper use, and having a video-conferencing system.

UCPD re-certified with 21 points for initiatives that include replacing their refrigerators, installing software to manage desktop energy use, replacing incandescent lights, setting printers to double-sided, using rechargeable batteries, offering no bottled water, setting sustainability goals, reducing paper use, and a sustainability section in Wellness newsletter.

Congratulations to both departments that have re-earned this recognition of sustainable practices!
