The Events Management Office of Smith College has expressed interest in having their office surveyed to estimate how much energy they use and what office members can do to reduce their environmental impact. After recording power usage of items in the office, conducting a questionnaire to obtain information on usage of items by office members, and calculating total annual energy usage and cost of energy, a list of recommendations was assembled for the office members’ consideration. While the office is already doing a lot to reduce energy consumption, results show that there are more areas where they can improve. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to demonstrate what actions members of the office can take to reduce their environmental impact and share this information with other offices on campus, in hopes that they would also adopt green office habits.
