NYU Green Workplace Certification logo

Have an impact and set a culture of sustainability at NYU.

NYU's Green Workplace Certification is a self-reporting program for administrators to receive recognition for improving the sustainability of their workplaces.

The Green Workplace Certification Checklist consists of operational changes and actions relating to electronics and equipment, purchasing, food and pantry set-up, waste management, travel and transportation, conference attendance, and remote work. Every action has a point value that has been determined according to relative environmental impact and ease of implementation.

The Green Workplace Certification program is currently in a pilot phase. To participate, please email sustainability@nyu.edu.
