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 maintaining 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 and set of goals, enhancing organizational culture and triple bottom line impact.

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!

Aurora not only actively engages an audience of millennials to boomers, but can even connect them with material not specific to their field. Through a video conference, Aurora did just that through transparency of lessons learned, light hearted moments, and analogies to which everyone could relate. She used innovative techniques to reach her audience, including real-time interactive polling during the presentation. She was able to get participants to apply lessons learned, and I have seen it have a positive impact on our projects long after. Because of Aurora’s impact, our department has made a more deliberate effort to continue this type of learning!
Aurora was so instrumental to guide me through a sustainability assessment. She helped me find a ways to implement solutions into the property that were simple, easy to explain but made an impact in our management/administration, facilities, purchasing and human resources categories.
