As COP21 approaches, countries continue to debate policies that foster a sustainable future. Should companies wait to align their climate targets with international goals? Or, should they take a stance now to drastically reduce their impact on the environment? Where is the path to becoming more sustainable, and how can organizations keep their employees motivated to meet their goals?

W. Scott Tew, executive director, Center for Energy Efficiency & Sustainability (CEES) at Ingersoll Rand, shared with TriplePundit an important first place to start when an organization commits to adopting a sustainable mindset  and implementing sustainable practices.

  1. Benchmark your organization
  2. Inspire employees
  3. Set long-term actions
