*In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus outbreak, please practice social distancing and follow government guidelines for gatherings and activities. Your health and your safety are our top priorities.*

You have what it takes to create momentum and lead action for sustainability at work, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone. Forming a green team is one of the most effective actions you can take for long-term success. If you are just starting your sustainability journey, focus on this as your first step.

What to Do

Build a core green team group by finding a few like-minded employees at your workplace. Then, determine how your team will be structured, what areas of focus you would like to work on and what responsibilities each member has.
