MEDA Green Team Guide
Why start a MEDA Green Team?
Environment and climate change are core components of how MEDA approaches its work around the world, ensuring the integration of environmental sustainability in all we do. MEDA’s Environment and Climate Change Policy reflects this commitment across the organization. At MEDA, we can be environmentally conscious not only in our project work but also in the office, and that’s where Green Teams help!
MEDA’s Green Teams raise general awareness among our colleagues about environmental and climate change issues, and mobilize action at the office to ensure that we are working as sustainably as we can. MEDA’s first Green Team started at headquarters (HQ) in Waterloo, ON and has actively distributed knowledge on environment and climate change issues and held events and challenges so that everyone can participate to be more environmentally conscious.
