Attend this web seminar and hear from companies that have developed strategies to put this force to work for the good of the environment and their companies’ bottom line!

Learn how to incite action in employees by developing and executing eco-friendly practices and programs. Hear how an employee-led grassroots team can grow into a company-wide program. Take the first steps towards creating a culture of sustainability.

Peer-led case studies will examine:

We will also preview "Taking it Personally," a new resource NAEM is pleased to offer the EHS & Sustainability Professional. This guide will be available in electronic and print format and is intended to be a foundational resource for companies who want to raise awareness and engage their workforce on sustainability issues and challenges. The guide offers a number of ways employees can get involved on a personal level and reduce their impacts on the planet. For a minimal cost, the guide also allows companies the opportunity to customize the content and include information on their organization’s own sustainability efforts and successes.
