June GreenLane Luncheon: Greening Your Office
June 6 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm| $5.00 - $12.00
What proactive steps can a business take to become greener? One way is to evaluate their office practices through the lens of sustainability. Identifying the “greenest/most sustainable” choice and/or action is not always easy, especially for busy professionals. Come learn how understanding your office’s greatest areas of impact can be key in making it greener.
Join us at GreenLane’s June meeting for a presentation that will delve deeper into this topic. Danny Pearson, representing BRING’s rethink Business Program, will discuss how their consulting program evaluates current office practices being used by their clients, and offer helpful recommendations that audience members can take back to their workplace.
