Are your employees active, enthusiastic participants in your sustainability initiatives? While it is important to identify what to include within a company’s environmental and social programs, it is equally essential to know how to accomplish program goals and objectives. One critical aspect of this is employee engagement – the emotional involvement and commitment of individuals linked to a common aim. Leadership sets expectation; employees (including leaders) make it happen.

The GEMI Quick Guide on Engaging Employees in Sustainability provides insight and explores potential strategies for fostering employee connections to sustainability, implementing an engagement strategy, and understanding the role of corporate culture within an engagement strategy. Leaders should consider examining and adapting these various facets to meet their own organization’s unique circumstances and needs.
