Tread Lightly, Your Next Steps Toward Positive Environmental Impact
Join us for the fifth workshop in the Measure What Matters series “Tread Lightly, Your Next Steps Toward Positive Environmental Impact” on July 24th at the Vermont Historical Society in Montpelier. Focused on Environment, this workshop will explore environmental design practices and management systems, including; facility energy use, renewable energy, environmentally friendly office practices, carbon offsets and greenhouse gas emissions, responsible use of water, energy and fuel, monitoring and reporting waste production, target setting and how to expand practices from company-wide to suppliers, your local community and external stakeholders. Attendees will learn from real world examples and leave this workshop with ready-to-use tools and a roadmap for improvement at their organization.
VBSR’s Measure What Matters workshop series is your opportunity to learn from some of the best companies in New England, see how you measure up against industry leaders, and find new ways to improve your business operations. Workshop attendees will leave with tools for change and an expanded network of professionals who believe in business as a power for good! Modeled after the B-Corp Impact Assessment, this new series will help members to better support their communities, reduce the impact of their operations on the environment and to create the best workplace for their employees. Join us for a single workshop or two or the entire series. With a multi-workshop registration, different employees in your organization can attend different workshops. Workshops are available for VBSR and NHBSR members only, with 50% discounts for Champion Members and 25% discounts for Gold Members.
