On Tuesday, December 17, 2013, from 1:00 – 2:00 pm (EST), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Green Power Partnership (GPP) will host a webinar entitled “Building Your Internal Network: Making the Switch to Green Power.”

The session will address one of the most important elements of organizational clean energy/sustainability strategy: effectively engaging allies across the enterprise.

Particularly for on-site and utility-scale green power opportunities, sustainability and energy staff find that they need to coordinate or collaborate with multiple additional functions within their organization - be it a corporate, institutional or governmental organization. Building the support of an internal network can make all the difference when it comes to making a purchase or installing green power on-site. In this webinar, we will discuss how to build this network, how to leverage other stakeholders’ key issues and address their challenges, and who needs to be involved.

Webinar participants will learn:

  • Which areas of an organization play a role in using renewable energy – including senior leadership, financial management, facilities management, operations, energy and utility management staff.
  • What information each group needs to make a decision on using green power, and how to present it in terms they’ll understand and support.
  • Real world examples from American University and Mars Incorporated.
Speakers include:
  • Blaine Collison, Program Director, U.S. EPA's Green Power Partnership
  • Chris O’Brien, Director, Office of Sustainability, American University
  • Kevin Rabinovitch, Global Sustainability Director, Mars Incorporated

Log-in information will be provided upon registration.
