You can introduce Green Office in your own organisation by using WWF’s presentation (2.85 Mt, pdf).

Six steps to Green Office

1. Gather information

Browse the Green Office web pages. You can also attend a Green Office introduction event at WWF Finland's office.

2. Sign a contract

Enter a collaboration agreement with WWF.  The admission fee is charged after signing the contract. After the contract has been formalised, the organisation will receive login information to the Green Office network extranet, Compass.

Request a draft contract from Helka Julkunen.

3. Create an environmental management system (EMS)

Upon joining the network, the organisation has a year to prepare a practical EMS for its office. The organisation selects a Green Office contact person and a Green Office team from among its personnel. To help create the system, the organisation may use web-tools provided by WWF, which can be found on the Compass.

4. 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.

5. Report annually

Once the organisation 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 programme 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.

6. 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, fulfilment of the Green Office criteria and use of the Green Office logo will be monitored.
