Sustainability Workshops

Sustain Yosef! 

Are you trying to find a way to encourage and promote sustainability in the workplace? Appalachian State University strives to continue to expand our sustainability education by offering faculty and staff the opportunity to become more sustainable in the workplace. Come join us to learn more about this certification program and ways to implement it in your office suite. 

So what is Sustain Yosef Green Workplace Certified? This certification is meant to be a tool to educate and develop habits that promote a more sustainable office environment. The program recognizes campus work spaces that have taken extra steps to ensure they are contributing to the sustainability goals of App State by greening their space, and lowering their daily impact. Use the certification as a way to promote sustainable actions within your workplace!
