The Power of We

The Power of We is a celebration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world, either for their own communities or for people they will never meet half way around he world.Today is Blog Action Day, an annual event that unites bloggers around the world by focusing on a particular topic.

This year, the theme is “The Power of We,” and to me, nothing symbolizes that subject more than the Wells Fargo Green Team. Our Green Team consists of more than 65 inspiring groups of Wells Fargo team members around the world who volunteer their time and talent to make our company operate more sustainably.

The stories each team shares about projects they are working on at the office and in the community are often reported on our blog. From energy scavenger hunts and “vampire” slayings, to trash-can trade-ins and Earth Day events, our Green Teams help Wells Fargo deliver on our commitment to do right by the communities in which we work and live.

Our Green Team is how our environmental actions come to life at Wells Fargo. They form an extensive environmental network across our international company that delivers local programs that support our shared company goals. It is the collective work of our teams and the many communities they support that allow us to leverage our collective energy and enthusiasm  to create positive environmental change.

So, today, in honor of Blog Action Day, we here at the Environmental Forum celebrate “The Power of We” as demonstrated by our Green Teams.

How about you? Tell us how you use “The Power of We” to inspire change in your community!
