Sustainability is a core value and top-level priority at Carolina. People who want to learn how to help their offices become more economically, environmentally and socially responsible can attend “Making the Workplace More Sustainable,” offered by the UNC Sustainability Office and the Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling.

Based on feedback after the inaugural workshop, the course has been expanded to offer more time for participants to plan their next steps. The two-day training will be held Tuesday and Thursday, February 14 and 16, from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m., at the Administrative Office Building on Airport Drive.

Participants will learn about sustainability goals and initiatives at UNC, become “green events” certified, and gain familiarity with a Workplace Sustainability Assessment tool designed for work units at Carolina. The assessment tool helps people identify, measure, and promote opportunities related to sustainable purchasing; energy; transportation; water; waste reduction, recycling and reuse; food and events; and health and wellness.

Register soon through ConnectCarolina for “Workplace Sustainability 1.” Space is limited.
