Staff/Faculty Eco-Reps: January 14

January 11, 2011, Volume 57, No. 17

Do you have ideas about how to make your office more sustainable? Apply to be a Staff or Faculty Eco-Rep for 2011. The Staff and Faculty Eco-Reps program is for anyone looking to reduce the environmental footprint of his or her office or lab through improved environmental awareness and behavior change. The group holds monthly lunchtime conversations to share best sustainable practices between departments, as well as brief trainings by Penn’s sustainability team on green topics. Eco-Reps take what they learn back to their offices or labs to share with others and implement change. The program aims to develop leadership and expertise in sustainability across the schools and centers by identifying, educating, and empowering individuals to champion Penn’s environmental and conservation goals outlined in the Climate Action Plan. The Staff and Faculty Eco-Reps program is managed by sustainability staff in Facilities and Real Estate Services and is part of Penn’s Green Campus Partnership, a collection of students, staff, and faculty throughout the University promoting better environmental practices and policy.

Help Penn become more sustainable by becoming a change agent in your office and by sharing best practices to save energy, boost recycling, and reduce our overall environmental footprint. For more information on the Eco-Reps program or to complete an application due by January 14, please visit the Green Campus Partnership website at www.upenn.edu/sustainability/eco-reps/faculty-staff.html.
