Participants will:
• 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
• Tap into a growing network of other sustainability professionals and community leaders
