Why sustainable operation isn't a burden, but a chance!

More and more facilities are finding that sustainable approaches to various facets of their operation can also be cost effective and customer friendly. These efforts may not be top of mind, but they become really interesting when they allow you to save significant amounts of money throughout your daily operations while enhancing sustainability. This seminar will examine best practices and the success that a number of facilities have had implementing ecological and social sustainable programs.
