Schedule a time for SCARCE to come and perform a green audit with your company's Green Team. This is a process in which the SCARCE consultant and green team members tour your office or facility to observe how you manage the building site, energy, water, materials, cleaning products and other potential indoor air hazards. Then, the Green Team receives a written report with a summary of successfully implemented  green initiatives, along with recommendations for important "next steps" to consider. After the Green Audit, a meeting with the Green Team is recommended. If your company does not have a Green Team established, we can help! The meeting involves reviewing the Green Audit, appauding what's working well and discussing which green initiatives to tackle next.
