Sustainable change can seem difficult to implement across large organizations. ISSP’s April 2nd webinar presents a case study on how the US Postal Service has orchestrated employee-led initiatives to realize over $100 million in annual economic savings, even while facing tightening fiscal pressures. Learn how USPS programs are aligned with overarching sustainability goals and how the organization tracks, measures, rewards, and reports ongoing results. And, learn how this same change model can be implemented in other institutional structures. Register here.
