The Green Office Pledge

As the conversation about being environmentally conscious shifts from “Why should I be green?” to “How can I be more green?” individuals are looking for as many ways as possible to lead a green lifestyle, and that includes the work place. PUSH developed the “Green Office Pledge” for Kilroy– a simple set of things office workers can do in the workplace to ask office users to become more aware of their carbon footprint at work. The “Green Office Pledge” digital initiative debuted in June 2013 at an event co-sponsored by Green Drinks San Diego, an organization that is frequented by people working on environmental issues in business, government, and academia and was met with overwhelmingly positive feedback. In one evening, over 40 people took the pledge through a microsite PUSH developed to collect names and email addresses. The initiative earned coverage in the San Diego blogosphere.
