Linking our personal actions to advancing a grand sustainability strategy is one important way to carry out our citizenship. We can help advance that strategy by transitioning to cleaner energy as soon as possible. The California Energy Efficiency Coordinating Committee will be looking at what it takes to create a movement movement that produces higher rates of applied energy efficiency. You have an opportunity to influence the design and delivery of energy efficiency programs in California by tracking and participating in these efforts.
It’s the end of the year with the holidays right in front of us — a time to gather the office community together for celebration, a time to look back and what has been accomplished, and a time to plan for the future. This also makes it an ideal time to advance and embed sustainable practices in your organization.
Being able to access the world of Sustainable Value thinking and action can be a game changer for businesses and organizations. The purpose here is to translate the sustainability conversation from simply adding efficiency measures into one of re-thinking and re-design.

The election is obviously a shocking and disappointing turn of events for most, if not all of us at REV. I believe our work at REV — and that of others in the field — is now more important than ever.
