Greening Your Institute or Center

NIH is greeni​ng the many activities and business practices occurring daily on our campuses. Although this is a new element in your IC's daily operations, the greening of business practices is already occurring at many ICs throughout NIH:

Forming a Green Team is an opportunity for the each IC’s senior management to green business practices.

If you are a senior manager, you can:

  • IC Green Teams use a systematic approach to examine activities/business practices occurring within their IC and develop tools to "green" those activities. This includes developing guidance, tools, outreach programs, and best management practices as well as identifying new opportunities to become more sustainable.

You can view a list of suggested NIH business practices that can be implemented to green your IC. For more information or assistance with the suggested business practices, please contact NIH Green by email or calling 301-496-7775.​​​​
