Facilities Management Green Team

The new Facilities Management Green Team is a group of staff members from diverse departments of FM that are meeting regularly to educate themselves and their colleagues about sustainability, examining the sustainability of current office and shop practices, and creating innovative solutions.  The kickoff meeting this week saw lots of energy and enthusiasm and everyone brought their best ideas to the table to brainstorm several projects to do around FM.

From the shops to Public Safety, anyone from a department within FM is welcome to join the FM Green Team.  There are about 20 other Green Teams on campus, from the Marriott Library to Health Sciences to the College of Law.

Watch for new initiatives to come out from the FM Green Team!  If you’re interested, please contact or join the Facebook page at

How can you go green right now?

  1. Print double sided, or print only what you need
  2. Purchase recycled paper
  3. Turn your computer monitor and screen off when you leave
  4. Try bicycling, carpooling, or taking TRAX or UTA to work.  You’ll be surprised at the cost savings and relaxation of not driving a car every day!
  5. Remember to recycle—put it in the right bin and rinse out any food waste.
