Green Your Business with Green Teams

I have been comforting and managing a sick teen this weekend, so I am going to be lazy today and provide abbreviated posts with some links to articles that you may find of interest. This post addresses the idea of using "green teams" to jumpstart and execute on sustainability initiatives at your place of business. Key takeaways:

  • Executive level support is imperative
  • Include departments or individuals most likely to impacted by changes on teams
  • Prioritize ideas and set specific goals for initiatives
  • Green teams are good tools for attracting, developing and retaining talent
  • Keep work-life balance in mind when developing initiatives
  • Make it fun - incorporate incentives, green events, contests and giveaways
  • Promote your green team initiatives to your clients, vendors and community
  • The rewards are many - cost savings, healthy happy employees, improved operational processes, positive public relations and a healthier planet
