green teams

What is a green team? Explore our coverage here...

Green Teams are self-organized, grassroots and cross-functional groups of employees who voluntarily come together to identify and implement specific solutions to help their organization operate in a more environmentally sustainable fashion. A green team is sometimes started by an active employee, sometimes mandated from above, or sometimes a combination of the two. Its purpose is generally to advance concepts of sustainability in to a company’s operations through grassroots effort, policy changes, or even larger scale transformation of production and operations.
