Sustainability Champion Cynthea Wagner

Cynthea Wagner: Minimizing Waste at Events

The FM Sustainability Council is excited to recognize Cynthea Wagner from Training & Development as our next Sustainability Champion. Cynthea has gone above and beyond in embedding sustainability practices into her day-to-day work of event planning.

Cynthea continuously finds ways to improve sustainability efforts throughout her numerous events. Some of her actions include: using three sided table toppers instead of printing individual programs, using compostable products at all events, using QR codes instead of paper for check-in, using caterers that source locally, and using water dispensers instead of bottled water. She also regularly checks-in with the sustainability team to learn about best practices and learning opportunities. Cynthea embodies the notion of a Sustainability Champion – always working to find ways to better our impact on the environment throughout the work day.
