Green Workplace

Green Workplace Certification is designed to educate and encourage members of the Yale 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.

Access to university-owned Y-Bikes provides an easy and free way to move around campus. Contact Transportation Options to acquire a Y-Bike for your workplace.

  2. Complete the checklist.
  3. Email the checklist to the Office of Sustainability by April 1, 2014.
