The Challenge has been suspended until further notice
Illinois Green Office Challenge Kickoff Event - Peoria Area
March 3, 2016, Time: 8 a.m.
Room 203 Perley Building, 115 SW Adams St., Peoria
Join us for the kick off of the Illinois Green Office Challenge of Greater Peoria, a friendly competition amongst organizations looking to save money by conserving energy and water, while reducing waste within your office building. This year provides an opportunity for you to build on last year's experiences and take on new cost saving conservation practices.
If you haven't played before, the Challenge is played like a game, where participants can score points for fulfilling or issuing specific sustainability challenges to colleagues and competitors. The Challenge website provides participants with the information and tools they need to compete, and participants can share best practices and ideas with their peers at fun networking events held within the Greater Peoria Community. Participants will be acknowledged for their hard work through media, peer recognition and year-end awards.
The Illinois Green Office Challenge has expanded across the entire state this year, with the help of local champions such as the University of Illinois Extension in Peoria. Training and program support is being provided by Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, a division of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Local sponsors include Peoria County Office of Sustainability, Greater Peoria EDC, and University of Illinois Extension.
There is still time to join the Challenge! Register now, or at the kick-off event on March 3rd!
Check out the activities that you can incorporate to improve efficiency. Great resources even if you don't participate in the challenge....this year!
