Building an Effective Sustainability Team
ft. Casey Meehan, Ph.D.

Join us for August's meeting where we will:

  • Discuss the environmental & social trends that underscore why establishing a sustainability team is important for any organization
  • Use the United Global Goals to reframe perceptions of what sustainability work includes
  • Reflect on how to establish an effective sustainability team

Having an active sustainability team is no longer a "nice to have", it's a "need to have". This program helps participants understand why having that team is important to your organization, your employees & the community.
