Green Team Toolkit


Get Your Green Team In Gear

Don’t have the budget or executive commitment to hire a Chief Sustainability Officer? You’re not alone. Many organizations are choosing instead to harness the power of enthusiastic employees to form a Green Team to advise and implement programs to shift internal operations towards sustainability.

Relying on untrained volunteers to guide an organization’s sustainability efforts has its peril—and Green Teams need thoughtful care and guidance to ensure that their efforts are coordinated, well-directed, and productive.​

We’ve developed a toolkit specifically designed to help navigate a clear path forward.  The Green Team Toolkit incorporates tips and tools for teams at all stages, and offers guidance to leadership in effective integration and management.  Although each section is written to a specific audience (executives, managers, junior staff, etc.), the guide can, and should, be shared with everyone on the green team.
