Green teams—groups of employees that work to make their company’s operations more environmentally friendly—have been a standard feature of corporate sustainability programming for over two decades. They have achieved great success in tackling the low-hanging fruit of corporate greening. But it’s time to take them to the next level. As we anticipate nine billion people on the planet by 2050 and we predict their two-planet impact on resources and eco-systems, how do companies reboot their green teams for greater business and societal benefit?
Green Teams 2.0 with Coro Strandberg provides a framework to rethink the corporate green team. Coro describes how to move them beyond small behaviour changes and volunteerism to embed the green agenda into the company strategy and business model. Those with existing green teams will learn about opportunities to expand the green team mandate. Those just starting out will learn how to leap frog modest approaches to design a more strategic program.
