As the environment becomes more of a growing concern for corporations and citizens, an environmental agenda is crucial for companies to achieve greater business success. Employee Resource Groups provide an impact with a bottom-up approach to dealing with climate change, diminishing environmental threats and reaching sustainability goals, whether locally or globally. Sustainability-centered E/BRGs provide employees with a chance to make an individual, local difference while allowing diverse employees to connect over a shared passion and mission.
A business case can be made for the formation of environmental/sustainability E/BRGs and their collaborative, purpose-driven, influential work. These groups serve as a critical piece to a company’s bottom line and assist with corporate social responsibility and corporate social sustainability initiatives.
