Marion regional campus one of 15 university-wide recognized for sustainability efforts

The Ohio State University at Marion was one of 15 Ohio State units across the state and the first ever Ohio State regional campus to receive the “Green Buckeye Certification” honor from The Ohio State University.

Green Buckeye Certification recognizes university offices, departments, and faculty who incorporate sustainability into their actions and touches upon areas such as communication and education, energy efficiency and conservation, recycling and waste reduction, water conservation, and purchasing.

According to Ohio State Marion Dean & Director Gregory S. Rose, this is an honor the whole campus shares.

“This recognition is a result of everyone’s efforts to recycle and reduce trash and the campus commitment, largely implemented by the maintenance department, to introducing more sustainability through energy efficient fixtures and HVAC systems and water use reductions,” explained Rose.
