Green Living has covered several Go Green Employee Resource Group (ERG) events throughout the years to spotlight associates coming together to make a sustainable difference. Now we want to give some context to our Go Green ERGs – as well as a guide on how to streamline the process. We want to ensure associates have the tools to start their own ERG in order to make a meaningful impact.
What is an ERG? They are associate-run and associate-managed peer groups of like-minded individuals that help influence the culture in the workplace. The Go Green ERG is a passionate group of associates that help educate and create awareness around topics of sustainability.
Just to give you an idea of the types of events and impact our Go Green ERGs can produce, here’s a list of past accomplishments:
Creating Infrastructure Change
Creating Awareness through Lunch and Learns
As you can see, the current Go Green ERGs have made quite an impact, but it’s time to get more associates involved in making a green difference. Learn how you can start a Go Green ERG of your own in our How to Start a Go Green ERG Guide (available to Macy's, Inc. associates only through My Macy's Portal).
And if you have a Go Green idea, please contact us.
