This select group of people will be the champions of environmental success. Together, they will meet on a regular basis to discuss, plan, and implement green business projects. Having a team will help spread the workload as well as allow for a broader source of information and opinions.
Your green team should consist of people who can be empowered to make changes. Their innovation and creativity will help foster cost savings, while their green habits will be contagious throughout the company. Team members should represent many sectors of a business like: office, maintenance, management, and operations.
The first task a green team must undertake is to make sure there is top down support for the program. It is important that mangers are included in the process and are ready to endorse concepts and ideas.
