Are you the link in the chain?

Your Link to Success

Which link are you in the chain of sustainability?

A sustainability program can be thought of as a chain made of strong individual links with power where they are interconnected. Link International Inc. connects these roles together to streamline the process and foster healthy communication within an organization.

The CEO is the ultimate decision maker

High-level executives are generally too busy to focus all of their attention on a waste management program. However, they act as the ultimate decision maker when it comes to the company’s environmentally sustainability initiative. To make them strong links, they need to receive important information regarding the waste management program so they can determine if it’s the right fit for the organization.

The Sustainability officer is the primary driver

The Sustainability Officer

This person is the primary driver of the sustainability program. It’s their job to communicate details of the waste management initiative to the CEO in an attractive, logical manner, and they must be the person who drives the facilities management below them. Link International Inc. works closely with the sustainability officer and simplifies all tasks related to the program.

The Facilities Manager manages the sustainability program

The Facilities Manager

Without the hard work of the facility manager, a sustainability program won’t succeed. They must determine if safety issues, potential contamination, and problems with vendors and equipment exist. In addition, facilities managers must work with their warehouse staff to ensure all employees get the training they need.

Those who are actually separating the materials in the warehouse breathe life into the sustainability plan. Without their attention to detail, collection bins could become contaminated or equipment could be mishandled risking safety.

The Secret to Success is a Strong Chain

Link International Inc. has discovered the secret to success when developing an environmental sustainability program.  The number one reason sustainability programs fail is lack of buy-in and support from the top down. If the program is not integrated on every level, the program effectiveness fades over time.
