Take Action: Faculty & Staff Sustainability Leaders

Sustainability Leaders facilitate the adoption of sustainable practices in their office or workplace.

All staff and faculty members can become a Sustainability Leader. To do so, first, attend ‘Creating a More Sustainable Workplace’. The Office of Sustainability, in partnership with the Leadership and Professional Development Office offers this lunch and learn session. The session provides participants with an overview of the University’s sustainability efforts and explores strategies for increasing sustainable practices in the office.

Second, utilize resources. After participating in the ‘Creating a More Sustainable Workplace’ session, the following resources are made available to support participants in their efforts to be Sustainability Leaders. 

  • Sustainable Workplace Assessment Tool/Checklist: This assessment helps Sustainability Leaders identify the current status of environmental sustainability in the workplace and provides a platform for establishing areas for improvement.
  • Moodle: Sustainability Leaders can access Elon Sustainability resources and share resources among each other.
  • Sustainability Leaders listserv: This allows Leaders to share resources directly and provide a way to update Leaders about sustainability efforts at Elon.
  • Semester luncheon: Once a semester Sustainability Leaders get together in person to discuss and strategize best practices.

If you want to learn more about this program or would like to use the Sustainable Workplace Assessment Tool in your office, please contact us.
