EarthShare Green Team Networks
Green Teams have evolved in large and small workplaces across the country as companies seek to increase their profitability, make their businesses more sustainable, and enhance their reputations. Sometimes Green Teams start as an initiative from senior management, but they can also start with employees that want to help the company, their local community, and the world at large.
To support these initiatives, EarthShare started convening Green Team Forums in local communities throughout the country. These forums connect busy professionals to share best practices in corporate sustainability and create a strong network of likeminded people. Sustainability and environmental leaders use our Green Team Networks to educate each other and candidly discuss the environmental issues affecting today’s workplace.
Green Team Networks are free to 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; how to “green” your office and supply chain; and much more. Meeting several times each year and staying connected via online communities, our Green Teams help build an environmental community through the management and flow of ideas.
Our Green Teams serve a central purpose in our communities: bringing together businesses – whether they are existing EarthShare partners or not – to facilitate networking and inform individuals representing a range of interests, from Fortune 500 companies to non-profits and associations.
