Have you ever wanted to know how many companies give their employees the chance to recycle or compost? Ever wonder how your company stacks up to others in terms of sustainability initiatives? Ever ask, “why is my boss such a jerk?”– only because your boss said no to your suggestion for installing a programmable thermostat?
Brighter Planet, a Vermont-based company whose credit cards offer users the chance to give to community renewable energy projects with each purchase, has just launched a survey to give all of us the chance to talk about our company’s true environmental commitment. Each completed survey contestant will be entered into a raffle for a $200 prize.
In a broader sense, these kinds of grassroots surveys can help provide valuable data to managers and sustainability consultants, HR professionals, and CEOs. A previous survey by Brighter Planet, for example, asked respondents about their purchasing behaviors around a highly intangible green product: carbon offsets. By learning buyer behavior on green products, renewable energy companies can help create better products and service offerings, and grow the renewable energy industry in the process.
Oh, and you’re probably looking for that survey link! Without further adieu, take the survey here. Good luck in the raffle!
