Each year, Environmental Defense Fund works deep within dozens of companies to bolster smart energy management through EDF Climate Corps. To date, the program has identified an average of $1 million in energy savings at each participating organization. Along the way, EDF has learned quite a bit about how companies make decisions around energy investments, and the best practices for overcoming common implementation barriers.

This webcast will leverage the experiences and insights of two Climate Corps participating companies:

  • adidas Group has hosted three EDF Climate Corps fellows to help with energy management activities, one of which is Elizabeth Turnbull who later joined the company full-time as Senior Manager for Environmental Affairs.
  • Ingersoll Rand has hosted six EDF Climate Corps fellows, who collectively have identified $6.5 million in energy-efficiency opportunities.

In this free, one-hour webcast, you’ll learn:

  • How your company can take its energy-management program to the next level, whether you are just starting out or already a leader
  • How to chart your company along EDF’s recently published roadmap, the “Virtuous Cycle of Organizational Energy Efficiency”
  • Common barriers that keep companies from optimizing efficiency and the leading practices for overcoming them; and
  • How adidas Group and Ingersoll Rand identified millions in energy savings and overcame barriers to implementing projects
