Sustainability Overview

What's your favorite habitat? Mine is the ocean. I love the smell of it, snorkeling and diving in it, and the preciousness of its contents. Unfortunately - no secret to any of us - the ocean's having a hard time right now.  Our Sustainability program offers opportunities to do green volunteering such as nature trail maintenance, as well as events featuring sustainability experts.  Is there someone in your organization already working on sustainability initiatives? Please let us know at sustainabilitydirector@pmisfbac.org. I'd love to invite they to share with us. Let's connect our work to our world. Looking forward to meeting you at the next event, green team!

This program began as the Green Project Management Seminar Series in 2011 and was re-booted as the Sustainability Program in 2019. It is sponsored and chartered by the Project Management Institute San Francisco Bay Area Chapter (PMI-SFBAC). Our goals are as follows:

  • Furthering the science and art of project management by identifying, studying and learning from projects that have any combination of (a) a sustainable goal as their primary deliverable; (b) incorporating sustainable practices into many or all aspects of project management.
  • Furthering public awareness of the multiple facets of sustainability, including but not limited too: energy use, carbon and other greenhouse gas footprint; waste stream; water; and environmental quality including indoors.
  • Increasing reputation and membership of Project Management Institute.

Sustainability Program Funding 

All event registration fees raised by the Sustainability Program are used towards sustainability initiatives or community service projects.
