• Develop a deeper understanding of sustainability best practices
• Learn new tools to implement sustainability in daily operations
• Complete a sustainable business self-assessment and action plan
• Prepare for the Actively Green Sustainable Business Certification

The Actively Green Sustainable Business Training and Certification Program was launched as an innovative legacy initiative of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail and Beaver Creek. Through a partnership with the global non-profit Sustainable Travel International the Eagle Valley has its own credible certification program and sustainability management system.
