TTG Sustainability Action Learning Program (SALP)

Sustainability Action Learning Program (SALP)

Although many corporate leaders today have heard about sustainability generally, they may not yet have had the time to take a serious look at their corporate strategies and operations from a sustainability perspective, and develop sustainability-related plans for their company's future success.

Through Transitioning to Green's Sustainability Action Learning (SALP) program, business leaders/managers get that opportunity.  They are guided through a highly efficient sustainability self-assessment  process that puts the company leaders and employees in a position to significantly improve their financial, employee, social and environmental performance while increasing sustainability.

SALP consists of Four 1-day Corporate Self-Assessment Workshops

Transitioning to Green's experienced sustainability “practitioner”  trainers roll up their sleeves to work with client companies to establish a context and strong foundation for implementing sustainability-aligned improvements appropriate to each company’s unique circumstances and aspirations.

The SALP Workshop Series engages and motivates corporate leaders, “green team” members and selected employee peers as they collaborate to:

  1. Discover what “holistic sustainability” means to their company
  2. Learn key sustainability program topics from a triple bottom line perspective (people, planet and profits)
  3. Inventory ongoing activities and participant expectations
  4. Co-create baseline program benchmarks
  5. Identify and self-assess new program initiatives, and
  6. Co-develop and practice presenting next step recommendations and action plans.

Transitioning to Green Expert Trainers work with participant companies to train and self-assess several core areas of risk and opportunity.  Then they work  to develop a roadmap of practical next step actions that save energy, reduce waste, implement lean and efficient operating practices, and engage and communicate their sustainability initiative with employees and stakeholders.
