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.

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 assess their office energy, lights, indoor air quality, waste management (reduce, reuse, recycle), green purchasing, transportation, commuting & travel and general workplace practices.  Several Scotty Goes Green Programs have Green Teams guiding their efforts.
