Welcome to Audio Learning from Assemble You.

In this track, we will take a look at how this applies to the workplace and why it matters. Then we’ll provide actionable steps for how to go green at work.
So what is sustainability?

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “Sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.”

So this is not only about single-use plastic cups but a broader need to reduce our impact on the environment.  Like most professionals, Sophie spends a huge part of her day - and by extension, a huge part of her life- in the workplace. If millions of people in offices take sustainability seriously, it could have a huge effect on the environment.

CB Bhattacharya, the Director of the Center for Sustainable Business, notes that it’s easy to feel like sustainability is somebody else’s problem. He says, “While most organizations talk the talk of sustainability - doing things such as integrating environmental and societal concerns into their business models - very few walk the walk.”
