What Is The People Power Challenge?

The People Power Challenge is a turn-key employee engagement program that gives businesses an opportunity to provide sustainability information and activities to employees at home or at the workplace. This engagement campaign runs for three months, with each month focusing on a specific theme: low carbon transportation and energy, water stewardship, and waste management.

At Partners in Project Green, we work to empower our Champions so they can embed sustainability into their corporate culture
and daily lives. We believe that any degree of behaviour change can contribute to creating a resilient and sustainable economy
in the Greater Toronto Area. Whether through small, individual actions or large corporate commitments, the responsibility of
environmental sustainability is a collective effort of everyone in your organization.
