Green Team Spirit creates a voluntary green team program for your business tailored to its unique needs. We work with senior management to learn about your business and guide you through the process of empowering employees to play a key role in the selection and implementation of green goals. We understand the value of employee time and work with you and your Green Team to strike the right balance of time and energy to be spent on greening efforts. We provide in-depth learning modules and ongoing support to Green Team members to facilitate their efforts. Green Team Spirit helps senior management to set the tone and vision that will inspire the dedicated effort of your company green team.

GREEN TEAM SPIRIT & WESTCHESTER GREEN BUSINESS

In 2009, Dani Glaser was contracted by The Business Council of Westchester to help develop the Westchester Green Business (WGB) program in partnership with Westchester County Government. The program has matured over the years to keep pace with the growing interest of the Westchester business community to “go green”.

Westchester Green Business is a licensed program of Green Team Spirit LLC and has adopted the GTS Toolkit© as its platform*. It is a membership and certification program open to all commercial business and institutional organizations in Westchester County, and as of 2017, New York State. WGB hosts educational events throughout the year and an annual Recognition Event & Awards Ceremony to celebrate green business and honor outstanding organizations.

The WGB program is affordable and the benefits of collaboration are exponential. Members are recognized for their leadership and willingness to share best practices to accelerate green business.
