Talking about sustainability is easier than putting it into action. How does an
organization get started? A recycling program and energy efficient light bulbs are a good
start, but where do you go from there? A sustainability assessment can help you set
priorities, and can be used as a tool to measure improvement. In this half-day workshop,
presenters will share sustainability assessment tools and local resources that can help
your organization take action.
