Green Office is suited to offices – both large and small – in private companies, the public sector and other organizations. Even small actions can make a difference, if enough people are involved.

Create an environmental management system (EMS)
Upon joining the network, the organization has a year to prepare a practical EMS for its office. The organization selects a Green Office contact person and a Green Office team from among its personnel. To help create the system, the organization may use web-tools provided by WWF, which can be found on the Compass.
Arrange for an office inspection
When the EMS is ready, a WWF Green Office expert will perform an inspection of office premises. If the office passes this inspection, it will receive the Green Office diploma along with the right to use the Green Office logo. After the office inspection, the first annual fee will be charged.
Once the organization has been granted with the Green Office labeling rights, it will start to report chosen key indicators to WWF. In addition, the office updates its environmental program every year. Reporting takes place annually in the spring via Compass and via Climate Calculator. WWF will send the reporting guidelines to the Green Office contact person.
Develop and improve
An office with the Green Office labeling rights should strive for constant development of its EMS and improvement of environmental awareness among its personnel. WWF will inspect the office premises every three years. During these reviews, fulfillment of the Green Office criteria and use of the Green Office logo will be monitored.
