Employees for Sustainability

About Green Reps

Green Reps are employees from across the entire University of Rochester who care about workplace sustainability.

From the heart of River Campus to the University’s many satellite offices, Green Reps act as:

  • Advocates—We champion sustainability efforts and promote green initiatives through e-communications, events, and day-to-day colleague interactions.
  • Liaisons—We relay your needs and feedback to the University Council on Sustainability. We can also present and represent your views, concerns, and priorities to University leadership.
  • Teachers—Education and raising awareness are important to the University’s sustainability efforts. We spotlight the many ways you can go green every day at Rochester.

There’s no limit to the number of Green Reps in an office or department.

What does being a Green Rep involve?

You will receive a regular e-newsletter, The Compost, exclusive to Green Reps, which contains tools, tips, and resources. You can choose to simply receive the information and stay in the loop, share the information within your departments, or take the information to help introduce or improve sustainable practices.

We’ll offer information and suggestions, but you have freedom and flexibility to implement sustainable strategies in a way that works best for you and your colleagues. We also welcome your thoughts, ideas, and input about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to going green at the University of Rochester.
