The Art and Science of Achieving Waste Diversion Through Behavior Change


About this session:

With more companies assuming responsibility for cutting down the 258 million tons of waste that Americans generate per year, encouraging behavior change among employees is key to achieving waste diversion goals. Kristin will outline how to leverage data to make educated decisions, incentivize employee participation, and involve key stakeholders to support greener practices, while highlighting the challenges that real companies are facing. She will draw upon ENGIE Insight, formerly Ecova’s work with clients who have taken unique approaches to improve their diversion rates measurably.
