Employee participation is critical to reaching our carbon reduction goal, as a majority of our emissions relate to air travel and commuting, factors that employees can influence. Our network of Green Teams – with representation in each of our markets – drives our broad environmental stewardship strategy at the individual, office, and market level.
Each year, we hold the Green Challenge to equip and empower our Green Teams to build a broader network, engage with local staff, and work with their local offices to find opportunities for change. The spirit of interoffice competition inspires new ideas that address energy consumption, waste reduction, and community outreach.
