Program Description

The Sustainability Champions Recognition Program spotlights employees who exemplify Facilities Management’s commitment to sustainability and have shown leadership to catalyze change for a more sustainable UVA. Anyone can nominate any Facilities Management employee at any level (no self-nominations, please). Actions big and small all matter! Using resources wisely, considering the environmental impact of our work or talking to others about the Facilities Management core initiative of sustainability are all actions that should be recognized and rewarded.

Do you know a coworker who always brings a reusable mug? Did your boss recently pilot a new waste reduction method? Is someone on your team an energy-saving hero? Do you have meetings with someone who is always asking how we can use resources more efficiently? Please nominate them so that we can continue to educate our Facilities Management community about what it means to be a Sustainability Champion and inspire others!
