Green Teams-Environment at CMU - Carnegie Mellon University

Scotty Goes Green Participating Offices

The Scotty Goes Green Program engages Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff in a voluntary, self-guided initiative that promotes a high standard for environmental practices at Carnegie Mellon. The program supports and promotes offices that are taking steps toward reducing their environmental footprint. A series of checklists and tools will guide you through three levels of certification. The program operates through a network of Scotty Goes Green Reps in workplaces across campus.
