With 74% of U.S. companies using or planning to implement a permanent hybrid work model, corporate campuses and how they are utilized are rapidly changing. Join Environmental Initiative and members of the Sustainable Growth Coalition for a conversation about campus sustainability best practices, employee engagement, and how programs are evolving as we work and gather in different ways.
