Implications for Facilities Managers”
November Luncheon, Presentation and Tour
WED NOV 20, 2013
Port of Portland HQ
7200 NE Airport Way
Portland, Oregon 97218
This talk will provide a framework to help you understand some different ways that people think about environmental sustainability and the use of natural resources in businesses and organizations. We will identify some best practices for communicating with and motivating different stakeholders and implementing effective behavior changes. These include recognizing and honoring different beliefs, setting realistic goals, and utilizing appropriate incentives. In this model, differences of opinion about the role of sustainability in the workplace—what we will call “environmental diversity”—are seen as a source of new ideas and innovation.
