Departmental Green Officers

Years ago, academic and non-academic departments were invited to appoint Departmental Environmental Coordinators (DECs) to look after environmental issues and promote environmental awareness at departmental level.

To further align and enhance the DEC’s network, DECs were renamed and rebranded to Departmental Green Officers (“Green Officers”) in 2015, representing a network of environmentally conscious colleagues to support Dean / Director / Head of Faculties / Schools / Departments / Offices in turning individual departments and offices into a greener workplace and manage their operations in a sustainable manner.

The Green Officers are nominated by Dean / Director / Head of Faculties / Schools / Departments / Offices while the Green Officers network is overseen by Campus Facilities and Sustainability Office (CFSO). Regular training, gatherings, sharing sessions and visits are arranged to deeply engage Green Officers in building a Low Carbon Campus.
