Green your office

The Green Office Certification helps offices and departments to adopt best practices and achieve greater sustainability engagement through a simple self-audit program. 

About the Program

The Green Office Certification is an audit process customized for Notre Dame offices interested in becoming more sustainable workplaces. With your help, we can reach the goals established in the University's Comprehensive Sustainability Strategy. The Green Office Certification program is designed to recognize the positive efforts of faculty and staff. Upon completion of the audit, participating offices will receive a certificate and will be acknowledged on the Offices of Sustainability’s website for their positive efforts.


The Process:

  1. Email the Office of Sustainability at to receive the link for the survey 
  2. If pursuing a personal certification, the employee will then fill out the form and have the opportunity to correct any unsustainable behavior
  3. Based on their score they will be offered one of three downloadable badges to put in their email signature that identifies them as achieving One Leaf, Two Leaf or Three Leaf Green Office Certification. 
  4. If an entire office decides to pursue Green Office Certification, a representative of the office must contact the Office of Sustainability with the names and email addresses for each employee in the office for form distribution.
  5. Every employee is required to fill out the form
  6. The scores will be compiled and a total score will be calculated. 
  7. Office of Sustainability will then contact the representative to award the certificate.
