Studying Employer Committment to Sustainable Advancement with Author Shari Aaron

October 15, 2010

Shari Aaron is the co-author of Climb the Green Ladder with U.K.-based Amy Fetzer. Aaron has worked in the sustainability arena for more than 10 years, and soon realized that consumers are the key to the sustainability revolution. She connected with Fetzer through online networking, and the pair spent a year-and-a-half investigating how committed employers were to sustainable advancement. “I started to notice there were a lot of really engaged employees at companies who were making some wonderful headway on programs in sustainability,” Aaron recalls. “I wanted to see how they became so successful in bringing their initiatives forward.” After spending a year doing in-depth research, Aaron realized that a lot of good, green work was being done. Her goal is to help readers realize this, realize what sustainability is all about and see what they can do to better impact their company and careers.
