Green Team Top 10 – #1 Leadership Commitment

Dani Glaser

A Green Team is a group of motivated staff, representative of ALL organizational disciplines that learn and work together to improve the organization’s environmental impact, reduce costs, and create a healthier place to work. In this series, we will explore the top ten essential components of a successful Green Team program.

1. Leadership Commitment

Without a doubt, the most successful Green Teams have unwavering support from the top!  Leadership is committed to transitioning the organization on a greener path, and welcomes staff to work with them and be part of the solution. Employees interested in an active role on the Green Team are motivated by management’s validation of the importance of the program.  A representative from management should participate on the Green Team and their participation can help to fast track progress. Leadership recognition of the Green Team’s efforts and accomplishments lends credibility and publicly demonstrates respect for the program.
