GPS Green Team

The green team is a group of environmentally conscious students, faculty, and staff that work together to reduce the energy consumption of Caltech's GPS division. In doing so, we: 1) provide educational tips to the division's workforce; 2) handle energy-related concerns on an individual basis; 3) organize fun events; and 4) establish benchmarks and improve on them.
