Are you ready to start a green team? Or want more results from your existing green team?
Building and activating a Green Team is vital for starting or continuing sustainability and corporate responsibility initiatives. Integrating sustainability throughout your operations is the only way to ensure those efforts will endure longer than the last person in the business who was responsible for them.
A Green Team is an effective way to share the responsibilities and maintain consistent sustainability activities even through turnover and other disruptive events that can get a business off course. It can bring together different departments around a common purpose, enhancing organizational culture and triple bottom line impact.

The context for this course is setting up a Green Team in a hospitality environment; however, the guidelines and principles can be applied in any type of business, especially businesses where a service is consumed onsite such as convention and meeting centers, sports facilities, retirement and nursing homes, apartment buildings, salons and spas, tourism destinations, office buildings, and retail.
Participants will receive a Green Team Playbook - an interactive toolkit with a checklists, worksheet, guides, and resources for managing the team and ensuring on-going effectiveness. There are 11 toolkits in the course!

Course Participant Testimonials
"I enjoyed the course layout and training material. The reading material is practical and can be maximized for bite sized training sessions and brainstorming for ideas. Some ideas from the course are now being reviewed and several are in the installation stages. I believe it’s a good course for employees and supervisors who are Green Team members as it provides them with an international view of sustainable management. The examples are diverse and include hospitality and non-hospitality companies. It was my little escape into a new world of possibilities for sustainability!"
