As part of our dedication to helping individuals and organizations build a healthy and sustainable future, EarthShare also convenes Green Team chapter meetings in several cities across the country. These meetings bring together sustainability and environmental leaders to share ideas, educate each other and provide a private forum to discuss the environmental issues affecting today’s modern workplace.

Our forums allow professionals to share their expertise on topics such as employee engagement; LEED certification; energy offsets; how to “green” your office and office supplies; and much more. Meeting several times each year and staying connected via online communities, our Green Teams help build an environmental community through the management and flow of ideas.
