Green Teams at Carnegie Mellon


A Green Team is a voluntary group of faculty, students, and staff, usually within one department, that team together to work on becoming more sustainable.

An environmental sustainability check list is available to assess office energy, lights, indoor air quality, waste management (reduce, reuse, recycle), green purchasing, transportation, commuting & travel and general workplace practices.
