Incorporate sustainability into job descriptions or performance reviews
Display a commitment to sustainable action in job descriptions or add a sustainability-related metric into an employee’s performance review.
• Is there boilerplate language about your school that is always included in job postings? Can a sentence about being a school committed to sustainability be added, for example “Our school proudly recycles and is idle free as part of our ongoing sustainability efforts”.
• Incorporating sustainable actions into performance reviews tie the school’s sustainability goals to personal actions, allow employees to take ownership of sustainability goals, and create a culture of sustainability.
• Putting a sustainability commitment into a job post also helps to attract new employees that are interested in sustainability and want to work for an environmentally conscious company. This differentiation will set you apart and create a competitive advantage.
