Green Office Certification

Green office platinum seal.CASIT successfully achieved the Platinum level of Green Office Certification through the Office of Sustainability here at the University of Oregon.

With a few simple changes around the office, we can all help with environmental conservation:

  • Following the UO’s Environmental Health & Safety, Surplus and Disposal, and Confidential Recycling policies.
  • Using post-consumer waste products
  • Switching to network-based storage solutions & moving servers to a virtual machine hosting solution, both offered by CASIT Systems.
  • Wearing warmer clothes to the office during cooler weather to conserve heat.
  • Putting a stop to junk mail instead of throwing it away.
  • Partnering with other departments to combine purchase orders and reduce campus deliveries.
  • Support alternative methods of commuting to and from work, such as carpooling.
  • Ordering reusable or compostable service ware from Catering Services.

CASIT is committed to innovative technology implementation with minimal environmental impact, so we can all enjoy our planet and our gadgets.
