What's a Green Team?Green Team

PCC Green Teams are self-organized groups of employees committed to advancing sustainable practices in their office, department and/or building. These sustainability champions recognize the importance of staff and faculty commitment in order to meet the college’s progressive sustainability goals.

Green Teams meet about once a month to connect and celebrate their accomplishments, reflect on shortcomings, and share ideas. These meetings also serve as a platform for collaborative education, community building, and innovation.

Green Team members use a variety of provided resources and outreach materials to promote eco-friendly offices and reduce the college's environmental footprint. They also serve as the primary contact for their department or building for all things sustainability and remain in constant contact with sustainability staff for support and resources.
