George Mason School of Business Gets Green Office Certified

According to a press release, The George Mason School of Business Office of Academic and Career Services was designated as a Green Office Certified by the university’s Office of Sustainability thanks to steps the school has taken to achieve climate neutrality and sustainability.

The Office of Sustainability created the Green Office Program, a certification process that recognizes offices on Mason’s campuses for reducing their environmental footprint through waste minimization, energy efficiency, water conservation and even the creation of wildlife havens and native plant gardens.

“We were surprised and encouraged to learn that many of the recommended actions toward Green Office Certification were already being implemented in our office,” Mary Byerley, green liaison for the Office of Academic and Career Services, said in a press release on the Mason website. “The Green Office Certification program is great way to bring teams together, and we are excited to share with our students that we are committed to sustainability at Mason!”

The Office of Academic and Career Services at the School of Business achieved this special certification by taking several thoughtful actions to boost energy savings, improve waste reduction, save on transportation, and become more involved in sustainability projects around campus. Some of these simple, but important, steps include turning off lights when leaving offices, putting computers in energy-saving mode, using reusable cups, sending electronic newsletters, and printing double-sided.
