Green Workplace Challenge competitors are seeking the edge they need to get ahead. This workshop guides participants through the first steps of the GWC, including how to set up their GWC accounts, develop their individualized game plan, build their baselines, and start tracking their actions. Participants will learn about many of the tools incorporated in the GWC actions, including the EPA Portfolio Manager, Commute Info transportation tracking, and the ROCIS air quality monitoring program.
