Green Workplace Certification
The Green Workplace Certification is designed to educate and encourage members of the Carleton community to adopt sustainable practices in their workplaces. The checklist offers action items that promote environmental vitality, human health & well-being, and financial viability. We hope it inspires you to develop creative solutions to sustainability challenges in your workplace.
The program provides recognition of efforts towards sustainability through a workplace certification rating, which can be displayed in your workplace.
The checklist can be viewed here:
