What is The Sheridan Green Checklist? Why participate?
The Sheridan Green Checklist is designed to measure the environmental impact of Sheridan employees in your everyday practices. The Checklist contains 14 questions covering five areas: waste reduction, energy conservation, water conservation, alternative transportation, and additional initiatives. The program raises awareness about the environmental impact of your daily actions and promotes behavioral change for sustainability on campus. It provides concrete guidelines to reduce individuals’ ecological footprint and collectively help Sheridan achieve its Mission Zero goals of reducing the College’s energy use and greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and eliminating all our landfill waste by 2020.
This program provides the Green Checklist Tip Sheet that explains the scoring system and suggests ways for you to earn points. The Tip Sheet is available at the bottom of this page.
This program is developed collaboratively by the Office for Sustainability and the Green Team. The results will support the development of the Green Office Certification Program in the next phase.
All current Sheridan employees are welcome to participate.
