What is GrOP?

The Green Office Program (GrOP) is a program that demonstrates Stark State's commitment to sustainability. Individual departments (divisions, groups etc) are invited to participate voluntarily to green their office areas as a team.  An excel worksheet is provided with a list of sustainability actions, habits and practices with points assigned to each. Groups works together to decide which items they will implement and turn in their worksheet to a GrOP contact for certification. Incentives are awarded upon completion of each level. Working together, we can make a big impact on the environment!
