Every day, MSU Spartans are taking action to make an impact on campus and around the globe. Our collective actions are transforming campus facilities and operations to conserve energy, reduce waste and maintain the campus ecosystem.
Each and every member of the campus community can make a difference through small adoptions of more sustainable practices. These changes not only benefit the university, but the individual and greater community as a whole.
If you are interested in contributing to a greener campus, there are many ways to get involved. This section offers resources to get started.
The Spartan Green Certification program is designed to recognize, assist and promote units that are taking steps toward reducing their environmental footprint.
Spartan Green Event Certification will verify that your event is working to maximize recycling, minimize landfilled waste, reduce consumption, and ensure that products at the event are reused or repurposed.
Spartan EcoReps are faculty and staff members dedicated to helping MSU achieve its environmental and energy goals through peer education.
The Spartan Treasure Hunt is an early step in the building commissioning process. It engages building occupants to help identify opportunities for energy savings and system improvements.
MSU promotes its Be Spartan Green campaign both on and off campus by engaging communities in Greater Lansing through sustainable education and outreach.
