Oracle Green Teams Help Improve the World Around Us

By Elena Avesani, Oracle Global Sustainability Manager

Oracle now has over 40 Green Teams, informal grassroots initiatives led by employees who want to make a positive impact in their location by promoting sustainability-related initiatives at work, home, or in their communities. Oracle’s Green Teams are located around the globe and continue to improve the world around us. They organize activities, oftentimes very creative ones, in their community and then share best practices with other Green Teams during a quarterly virtual meeting. The common thread among these activities is that the teams are having fun while making a positive impact.

Here are just a few of the activities these Green Teams are leading:

  • The Romanian team worked with its local real estate and facilities staff to help eliminate the use of single-use plastic in its 4 offices
  • Each Monday the Singapore team shares meat-free recipes for meals
  • The Italian team launched a contest to take a picture depicting one’s environmental impact and then post it on their slack channel
  • Oracle Costa Rica was certified as "Bandera Azul Ecologica", a local initiative from the Government to incent organizations to plan their growth based on environmental sustainability
  • The Malaga team held a Zoom learning session on how to live more sustainably at home,  covering topics such as how to reduce plastic and providing fun ideas to get kids inspired 
  • The Sweden team created a Sustainability Bingo challenge where contestants mark a box green once they have achieved it and if they filled two rows, they submit their bingo card

These are just a few examples of the many activities that the Oracle Green Teams have initiated. At Oracle, we applaud the efforts of the Oracle Green Teams, as well as all of the Oracle employees involved with Oracle Volunteering projects and our Oracle Sustainability Champions. At Oracle, sustainability is everyone’s business and every little action really does make a big difference!
