Webinar: Overview of Illinois Green Office Challenge, 3/15

The Illinois Green Office Challenge is a program patterned after the Chicago Green Office Challenge which encourages friendly competition among office buildings to achieve energy and water conservation as well as waste reduction. It aims to make Illinois more livable, sustainable, and prosperous.


Now in its second year, the Challenge is currently recruiting community champions and participants for a sustainability competition that began on March 1, 2016 and will run for six months, culminating with a celebration in September. Winners of the competition will then be recognized at the 2016 Governor’s Awards.


If your organization is interested in participating and would like to learn more, join Bart Bartels of the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center for an overview webinar next Tuesday, March 15th, from 9:00 – 10:00 AM CDT. This webinar is being held in conjunction with the IL Green Government Coordinating Council Procurement Subcommittee meeting, but is open to all interested parties. The presentation will be recorded and made available for later viewing on the Challenge web site, www.illinoisgoc.com. Registration is available at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3140381503145799426.
