A couple years ago, the Director for the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, Parker Snowe, approached me with the idea of greening the CPGC. He described it as wanting to “walk the walk” when it came to sustainability. Of course I was intrigued, I’m always up for suggestions on how to make Haverford more sustainable. The seed that CPGC planted several years ago has grown into a program that CER is proudly launching this fall. The Green Office Program.
Departments that sign up are given a checklist and ways to make their offices more sustainable. You could go for Silver or Gold Squirrel Certification or the granddaddy…”Green Squirrel.” For more information and how to get started, visit the Greening Haverford website.
