At GreenerU, we take our sustainability mission seriously. We recognize that we all must take actions, big and small. Like our college clients, we look for the most cost-effective ways to bring about the most impactful results in lowering greenhouse gas emissions.

GreenerU strives to provide opportunities for team members to practice our mission of sustainability through everyday office practices. Here are some of the things we’re doing:

    • GreenerUS is a group of GreenerU staff dedicated to realizing GreenerU’s sustainability mission through practicing energy efficiency and change management within our own company operations. The group is composed of four working groups that focus on transportation, energy, material resource management and engagement. Each of these groups works to identify, explore, plan and implement projects that allow GreenerU to lead by example.
    • In our office we have made efforts to build out an energy efficient space through the use of energy efficient lighting, occupancy sensors, high efficiency water source heat pumps, carpet made from 44% recycled content, and countertops made from 75% recycled glass and porcelain.
    • Each year, GreenerU employees participate in the Zero Waste Challenge.
    • Many employees take bikes to work and we encourage green transportation options.
    • We provide Preserve reusable dishware for use in the office.
    • Sustainably sourced and recycled office supplies are purchased whenever possible.
    • Environmentally friendly products including napkins, reusable utensils, and fair trade coffee are purchased for the office.
    • We use a Brita water filter to reduce the need for single use water bottles.
    • Employees are encouraged to print double-sided, black & white copies whenever possible.
    • We reuse paper whenever possible and recycle all discarded paper.

At GreenerU, we believe all of our actions are important. With our highly motivated staff and dedication to sustainability, we will continue to look for new ways to make a difference.
