Employee-centric strategies to improve your environmental footprint.
Free Webinar
Wednesday September 23, 2015 1:00 PM EDT

Organizations are making strides in improving their environmental footprints through the implementation of large-scale technologies and top-down process improvements.  

What many overlook, however, is the potential for bottom-up, employee-centric changes that can add significant benefits for sustainability. 

In this 60-minute webinar, Dr. Jane Webster will demonstrate how small changes by many add up to meaningful impact. You’ll leave the session with important insights about how to design, implement, and measure your pro-environment initiatives.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn from case studies of successful workplace interventions
  • Discover interventions that work best for encouraging employees’ pro-environmental behaviours
  • Acquire a framework to help your firm plan & implement bottom-up green initiatives.
  • Gain simple strategies for increasing and measuring employees’ sustainable behaviours.

Following a 45 minute presentation, we will have ample time for Q&A with our speaker.
