EarthShare Green Team Networks

Green windowEmployee Green Teams have evolved in workplaces across the country as companies seek to increase their profitability, make their businesses more sustainable, and enhance their reputations. While Green Teams are sometimes launched as an initiative by senior management, they're also being initiated by employees who want to help their company, their local community, and the world at large.

This is why EarthShare convenes Green Team meetings in major markets throughout the U.S. These forums connect busy professionals and promote discussion about best practices in corporate sustainability, while creating a strong network of likeminded people. Sustainability and environmental leaders use EarthShare's Green Team networks to educate each other and candidly discuss the environmental issues affecting today’s workplace and business operations.

EarthShare Green Teams determine their collective interests and set agendas for discussion. Network members typically host meetings on a rotating basis, giving participants an opportunity to learn how other companies are addressing core concerns and opportunities over time.

Our forums allow professionals to share their expertise on topics such as employee engagement; LEED certification; energy offsets; “green” office and supply chain practices; and beyond. Meeting several times each year and staying connected via online communities, EarthShare Green Teams help build an environmental community through the management and flow of ideas.

Green Teams serve a central purpose in our communities: bringing together businesses – whether they are existing EarthShare partners or not – to facilitate networking and information sharing amongst individuals representing a wide range of interests.
