The Green Side of Business: UPS Sustainability Experts Weigh In on DODOcase

Dalton alerted UPS that DODOcase would be forming a sustainability task force. McIntire  applauded these efforts. “I’m a big proponent of having younger employees lead projects, it’s great project management training and reveals skills that might otherwise not be discovered.” She suggested DODOcase’s task force explore various literacy and environmental programs the company had mentioned wanting to get behind. This would extend from meeting with local executive directors and educating the company on their options to encouraging volunteerism.

McIntire recommended checking into corporate incentives for carpooling or public transportation through San Francisco’s city transit office. “Usually, your company can enroll in a city program and get discounts,” she says. “In some cases, companies participating in carpooling programs actually get cash from the city.”

Another UPS proposal was to expand sustainability conversations during the lunch hour by having speakers come in from environmental groups, waste management, and utility companies to discuss conservation methods.

Keeping sustainability conversations rolling is definitely on DODOcase’s radar. “As our team has grown, it’s been a challenge to make sure the company’s values are conveyed with the same meaning and passion as they were when we established them,” says Dalton. “In this process towards increasing DODOcase’s sustainability, we definitely want to revisit those values and ensure that we’re living and embodying them every day we come to work.”
