“Although many organizations want to “go green”, they are busy focusing on their daily operations and don’t have the time and expertise to incorporate sustainability into their core mission. I saw an opportunity to help organizations accomplish this goal by providing expertise and a turnkey training program to facilitate the process.”

Dani Glaser, CEO & Founder, Green Team Spirit

Dani Glaser

Dani Glaser is the CEO & Founder of Green Team Spirit LLC. Her inspiration to start the company in 2008 stemmed from her research to develop a green business engagement program for Westchester County. She discovered that companies that were successfully incorporating environmental sustainability into their core mission were those that combined strong executive support, a diverse green team and systems for measuring and tracking results. Many of these case studies were from large, global organizations so the opportunity was to create a program to help organizations of any size and type to achieve their sustainability goals in an “easy” and affordable manner.

Dani’s company developed the propriety GTS Toolkit© to facilitate the successful integration of sustainable practices into company operations. The GTS Toolkit© contains templates, resource links and step-by-step guidance to set policy, take action and measure performance in the areas of organizational commitment, energy, transportation, materials management (waste/recycling and green purchasing), water, and land use.

Dani’s company provides the licensed GTS Toolkit© and expertise to the Green Business Partnership (GBP), a public/private partnership between The Business Council of Westchester and Westchester County Government. GBP has been recognized by New York State (NYSERDA) as a replicable model and is now available to all NYS businesses. Dani also works with local governments, extending her expertise to the municipal sector.

Jana is an MBA professional with extensive experience in financial analysis and sustainability reporting.


“Dani provided critical support for the creation of municipal green teams in Dobbs Ferry and a neighboring municipality.  She and her colleagues at Green Team Spirit were unflagging in their commitment to providing a valuable framework and useful tools and Dani was a true pleasure to work with throughout the project.”

“Dani is truly a guru in Westchester’s “green” community. I’ve utilized Dani as a presenter at events, as a resource for identifying important contacts and as a springboard for ideas to enhance my own outreach. I’ve also observed the efficiency and thoughtfulness with which Dani has managed projects, from inception to follow-up. She is an outstanding professional, and I am truly privileged to have an ongoing working relationship with her.”

“Dani is a go getter who can open communications among a group to make them a team. Dani faciltated progress in a goverment program that had been mired in doubt. Dani brought new ideas and a fresh approach to building a team and I recommend her for business and government clients alike.”

Andrew Fischer, Energy Analyst

“Cortlandt Green Team members are hard at work to reduce pollution and waste, increase recycling activities, create awareness through education and motivational programs, green the Town fleet and decrease transportation usage, develop a green procurement policy, conserve water and reduce paper and mailings through brochure consolidation. I am very excited and proud to be a part of our Green Team. The members have an excellent agenda with goals to conserve energy in our government. Their team spirit is contagious and so very important. Keep up the great work!”
