“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

Green Team Spirit, founded in February 2009 by CEO Dani Glaser, provides organizations with the tools and expertise that they need to successfully integrate sustainable business practices into company operations. The unique Green Team Spirit methodology helps organizations learn exactly where resources are being wasted and identify opportunities to increase efficiency and save money. Proprietary performance tools are used to calculate the economic and environmental impacts of energy, travel, waste, water and refrigerants in an organization, while staff surveys gauge behavioral impacts. An action plan is developed that builds upon the results and motivates and trains everyone in the organization to be part of the solution. Green Team Spirit helps organizations gain public recognition by sharing best practices through a variety of communication channels and events.

Dani Glaser is well known for her expertise in green business and her willingness to share her knowledge throughout the community. She is the creator and Co-Director of the Westchester Green Business Challenge, a public/private partnership between Westchester County government and The Business Council of Westchester. Under her leadership, this program has grown attracting over 300 of Westchester’s diverse businesses. In 2014 Dani and her colleagues developed and launched Westchester Green Business-Certified, a valuable and rigorous program for organizations that are ready to earn certification for their environmental stewardship. There are over 50 members of which 18 have achieved certification. Dani also works with local governments, extending her expertise to the municipal sector.
