Frequently Asked Questions


  • What is the time commitment?

    It varies, but past winners have said it is a commitment of approximately 3-5 hours a week.

  • What if I have multiple facilities that want to complete?

    Competitors will be free to enter as many facilities as they like under one entry fee, or to enter them separately. If they enter separately, each facility will be given it's own Final Engagement Report, and each facility will be provided with individual facility Champion support throughout the Challenge. If they decide to enter as one team, they will receive one report and Champion support for one person throughout the Challenge, and they will be responsible for consolidating and entering points from all facilities into the Scorecard.

  • Do I have to go after specific environmental target areas?

    You can go after whatever environmental area makes sense for you. If you are focusing your efforts on waste, make the People Power Challenge about waste. If you are looking for broader sustainability engagement, take suggestions and pledges in all sustainability areas.

  • Do I have to do every activity on the Scorecard?

    You can go after which ever points make the most sense for you. There is no need to try to complete every activity if it doesn’t make sense for your business.
