Sustainable Workplaces

Are you a faculty or staff member at U-M Ann Arbor? Are you interested in helping the environment while you work? Departments have many opportunities to help the university meet our sustainability goals!

Get Certified!

Start by defining your workplace (an area that shares common areas and resources). It may include just one or all offices within a unit. All sizes are welcome to participate.

You do not need to be a “green guru.” Someone who enjoys rallying co-workers to reach a common goal is a great fit!

Next, complete an online self-assessment of your current workspace conditions and practices to the best of your ability. Please choose the assessment most relevant to your workplace:


Once submitted, an OCS staff member will work with you to schedule a walk-through to assess next steps to achieving your sustainability rating.
