Employee Engagement

The 120 million private sector employees in the United States can play a critical role in reducing waste, increasing energy and water efficiency, and taking other actions to help achieve workplace sustainability goals. According to recent survey research conducted by NEEF, GreenBiz, and PwC, 73% of respondents indicated that their company is educating employees across the organization about its corporate sustainability goals.

NEEF collaborates with industry leaders, including International Paper, Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly-Clark, Intel, and partners including GreenBiz, to share, develop, and report on best practices and demonstrate real-world case studies of companies that are embedding sustainability into their culture. 

NEEF also works with organizations on engagement campaigns to increase awareness and support for corporate social responsibility priorities, and encourage team members to take action on sustainability at work, as well as at home and in their communities.

If you are interested in collaborating on an engagement campaign at your organization, please contact our team.
