About the Sustainability Task Force

In 2009, several WHOI employees met to discuss how sustainability efforts and energy conservation could be improved within the WHOI community.  From this working group, the Sustainability Task Force (STF) was formed with representation from most areas of the Institution.

STF continues to  strengthen WHOI's commitment to sustainable practices and energy conservation.

We invite the WHOI community to participate by reviewing the website, supporting Task Force initiatives, submit ideas to sustainability@whoi.edu, and encouraging conservation initiatives.  We look forward to your input and commitment to these goals.

Contact WHOI's Sustainability Coordinator, Stephanie Madsen, if you have questions smadsen@whoi.edu
