Jill Buck Speaker Biography


Jill Buck is an international featured speaker at business, public policy, and environmental conferences, and has been featured in such publications as U.S. Mayor, National School Boards Association Quarterly, Working Mother Magazine, Women’s Health Magazine, Ebony Magazine, and Diablo Magazine’s “Women to Watch.”

In 2002, Jill founded the Go Green Initiative, a 501©3 that is the global leader in environmental education, operating in all 50 U.S. states and in 73 countries around the world. The program has been endorsed by the National School Boards Association (NSBA), National Recycling Coalition, 9 State PTA’s, California Integrated Waste Management Board (now CalRecycle), California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA), and many more. Jill serves on the editorial board of the Green Schools National Network’s quarterly publication, Catalyst Magazine; and is a member of the Executive Committee for the K-12 Technical Council of CRRA.

Jill is the host of Go Green Radio, a weekly program on the U.S.’s largest internet talk radio station, www.VoiceAmerica.com, and is co-author of the book, 47 Things You Can Do For The Environment.

Jill Buck is an alumna of the University of Illinois, and after graduation, was commissioned a Naval Officer. While stationed at the Fleet Training Center, San Diego, she served as the Legal, Physical Security, Admin, and Command Inspection Officer, as well as a Damage Control Instructor. She is an honor graduate of the Military Justice School, and a graduate of the Navy’s small arms weapons course, taught by former Navy Seals.

Jill holds a B.A. in English from the University of Illinois, and an M.S. in Education, specializing in Online Teaching and Learning, from California State East Bay.

Jill’s motto:

It’s not enough to prepare our children for the future. We must prepare the future for our children.

Do You Perform Like a 21st Century Business Leader? 

“Sustainability” is a worn out catch phrase in many circles, but in the world of finance, it’s one of the metrics that could determine who invests in your company, and who sees you as a liability. If your company is not ready to report on its sustainability initiatives, you absolutely must catch up, and Jill Buck will help you. For over a decade, Jill has been recognized as a global thought leader in sustainable business systems, and is an international featured speaker at business, public policy, and political conferences. 

Sustainability, or ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance), reporting is becoming increasingly mainstream. Since the introduction of more than 100 ESG metrics to the Bloomberg Terminal in 2009, data has been gathered on more than 5,000 of the most actively traded public companies, and that data is now public to investors. Jill can help you develop procedures to:

  • Increase logistics efficiency
  • Decrease packaging costs
  • Minimize pollution and regulatory risks
  • Lower operating costs
  • Verify worker safety in overseas suppliers
  • Measure your company’s carbon footprint
  • And much more…

The investment and banking communities have begun utilizing this information for evidence that companies are adequately assessing and managing economic risks associated with environmental and social issues. These economic risk factors have been highlighted by cases such as: Coca Cola’s competition for local water supplies in India; Walmart’s adverse publicity after the Tazreen factory fire in Bangladesh; and Apple’s perception problems related to working conditions at Foxconn. 

In addition to ESG data on Bloomberg Terminals, other entities have begun to measure ESG performance, e.g. Reuters, the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, and the NASDAQ Global Sustainability Index.

Companies engaged in ESG reporting are actively pursuing methods to quantify their operations in terms of environmental and social impact, but the greatest challenge is developing policies and procedures to create sustainable business operations that are measurable – and therefore, manageable. Jill Buck can train any sized group to meet this challenge.
