Oct 23: Sustainable business workshop

Smart, Sustainable Choices for Operations, Transportation, and Facilities

Businesses continually have opportunities to improve upon their operations by embracing proven, smart, and sustainable principles. Such "Smart Growth" strategies can be integrated into the way facilities are operated, how they are designed, and where they are situated.  Smart Growth choices provide beneficial answers to vital operations-related questions, such as:
  • How easy/costly is it for employees to get to and from work?
  • What on-site features affect equipment operation, stormwater mitigation, and facility capital investments?
  • How much do I spend on energy and waste?
  • How engaged is my workforce?
Join the Engineers' Society of Western Pennsylvania (ESWP) and Sustainable Pittsburgh's Champions for Sustainability business network in how to address these types of questions during the third program in the SWPA Sustainable Business Compact workshop series.  During these workshops, attendees are introduced to sustainability topics covered in the SWPA Sustainable Business Compact, a pathway for businesses to advance and publicly demonstrate their corporate sustainability achievements.
