Greening Your Office (TD1516)

Thu, 2 Nov 2023 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: IT Training Center, JMAC 4

Description: This workshop provides an introduction to green office best practices. Participants will view five short online video modules and then complete an online, self-guided work-sheet to develop goals and plans for their workspaces. Modules 1-5, The Big Picture, Water, Energy, the 6Rs, and Purchasing/Procurement, were created by Dr. Maria Papadakis and Dr. Jennifer Coffman, faculty members in the Department of Integrated Science and Technology and discuss the principles of being more sustainable in the workplace. Module 7 outlines the JMU policies and procedures related to sustainability and was developed with contributions from personnel in multiple units. (Module 6, "Next Steps," is optional but recommended.) Amanda Bodle from the Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World (ISNW) will facilitate.
