Sustainable business practices make good business sense. The Sustainable Business Program is here to assist you in greening your workplace while creating a healthier return on your investments.

Our program is designed to encourage businesses to green their business operations. Businesses that have made sustainable improvements in their day-to-day operations have shown to prosper and been resilient. There are many areas or parts of your business that can be evaluated for improvement.

The top 7 top sustainable elements are highlighted below.

1. Reporting — Establishing a baseline to measure improvements.

2. Energy efficiency — Typically hardware, or physical building improvements.

3. Clean air — Assessing the improvement to your office indoor air quality.

4. Water — Providing a way to conserve a natural resource that continues to go up in price.

5. “Zero” waste — Lowering your ‘waste trail’ so as to make an environmental impact.

6. Sustainable purchasing — Following your suppliers (and encouraging them) to go green.

7. Work/Life balance — Encouraging telecommuting and technology to reduce overhead.
