Green Office Program

The Green Office Logo. The words "Green Office" in the color green with a leaf.

The Games Institute is participating in the University of Waterloo's Green Office program. This is an opportunity for our community to work alongside other offices across campus with the understanding of reducing our environmental footprint and implementing more sustainable measures.

Over the coming months, we will introduce new actions and initiatives to make the GI space more sustainable. This may involve new signage to encourage actions like proper recycling, utilizing the green bin, fun campaigns to support more sustainable efforts, and many more actions and activities.

Part of our efforts in the Green Office Program are the Indigenization efforts we have taken on that includes a variety of office plants to create a greener and more inviting atmosphere in the Collaboration Space. The involvement and use of office plants is an effort to connect people and nature in our working environments and is a small part we play in honoring and valuing Indigenous worldviews.
