It's natural for employees outside EHS to think of sustainability as "someone else's job." But Ingersoll Rand PLC is changing that paradigm through its "One STEP Forward" program.
Through the program, Dublin, Ireland-based Ingersoll Rand
—whose diverse product portfolio includes power tools, golf carts and air-conditioning units—enlists employees across the company to view their personal lives and their workplace through a sustainability lens, and to lead sustainability projects with positive EHS impacts.
The long-term, companywide employee-engagement program is supported by onsite sustainability-champion training and reinforced by the site-level execution of sustainability projects.
