Our second 3P Case Study is on the Facilitated Workshop Aproach to Sustainability Management. Janice Nietzel and Sarah Feinstein suggest that conducting workshops on sustainability within organizations is a great way to jump-start sustainability improvements.
The authors of this paper, both MBA students at the Presidio School of Management, held a one-day Eco-efficiency Brainstorming Workshop, focused on reducing resource consumption, energy use, pollution, and wastes at an international consumer products Midwest manufacturing plant. In the study, they reference the process used and results obtained in order to demonstrate their findings. It’s well worth a read.
