Sustainability Advocates

The Sustainability Advocate Program engages the broader NYU community in the effort to create a more sustainable campus. The program harnesses the effort, energy, and enthusiasm of employees to "green" their departments and work spaces, while educating others and increasing awareness throughout the university.

Offices that are engaging in the Advocate Program work towards environmentally preferable goals to improve the sustainability of their work area. As an advocate for your department you will work in tandem with members of the Office of Sustainability to identify and improve your office’s performance in various categories. Your office will be eligible to submit a checklist to achieve “Green Certification!"
