The Office of Sustainability sponsors several programs at WPI. The EcoReps are a student and faculty/staff group which reports to the Office of Sustainability and assists in creating more sustainable programs on campus, such as the Green2Go program.
NEW! Sustainability Ambassadors
Sustainability ambassadors engage in projects and connect up with people and groups throughout the WPI campus in order to make our campus more sustainable. To learn more about this program, join us at our first meeting, October 2 at 6pm Zoom ID 861 626 5058. You are also welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
The Green2Go is a reusable container program which helps to reduce the waste caused by disposable food containers at WPI. Green2Go is available at the Campus Center Food Court, Goat's Head Restaurant, and the Gordon Library Class of 1970 Cafe.
LEED Certification Program Training
Every year, the Office of Sustainability and Green Team host a LEED Certification Program Training session. LEED is a green building rating system, and buildings which attain LEED certification are efficient and sustainable. This session is a class to help attendees prepare for the LEED Green Associate exam, including study resources and practices exame, at a reduced cost. Check out the poster to the right for information on this year's program.
The annual waste audit is a collaboration with the Green Team in which WPI calculates the true recycling rate of several buildings on campus. Participating individuals sort through the trash of several buildings to determine commonly disposed items as well.
The lighting fair is an annual Green Team co-sponsored event where an outside provider offers LED lights to the WPI community at discounted pricing.
The E-Waste Drive is a Green Team collaborated event in which the WPI community can bring their electronic waste (TVs, appliances, phones, laptops, etc) to be properly recycled/disposed of.
