Bridging Green Goals and Implementation through Training

Although the value of green operations is becoming clearer, the meaning of “green operations” remains elusive for many. It’s more than disparate pieces of energy efficiency, water management, purchasing, materials’ use, etc. Green operations deals with how these segments interact with one another throughout an organization and across a portfolio through systematic processes.

In addition to systems efficiencies, truly green operations provide an even higher level of staff utilization and operational gains – especially when decision makers and staff are on the same page and able to educate one another. Without educating stakeholders about the who, what, why, and how of green operations, these benefits are unattainable. Training not only helps move organizational plans into action, but it can also help achieve operational and staff efficiencies.
