GLRPPR Sector Resource: Generating Sustainable Value: Moving Beyond Green Teams to Transformation Collaboratives

Title:
Generating Sustainable Value: Moving Beyond Green Teams to Transformation Collaboratives

Abstract:
The prevalence of Green Teams in the corporate sector is a growing phenomenon. Groups of intelligent, caring, and driven individuals volunteer their time to spearhead initiatives that will drive change within their workplaces and within their companies. More often than not these teams have high hopes that their efforts will help transform the mindset and the values of other employees and the company at large to bring sustainable practices into their organizations. The 14 companies that participated in this survey were identified as leaders in their industries as well as leaders in employing differentiating sustainability initiatives. The objective of the research project was to learn about the overall structure of the companies' Green Teams and specifically how the teams are affecting product and service innovation. The purpose was further to discover these best practices within and across industries and then to share them in order to enable readily repeatable practices.
