What does it mean to be sustainable? How does sustainability differ from green? What benefits does sustainability bring to a building, or a company, for that matter? What types of products and practices support a sustainable mission?

In this 60-minute webcast, sustainability expert Steve Ashkin answers these questions and offers insights into how an organization can clearly define its green/sustainability goals through a deeper understanding of just what sustainability is. Beginning with the basics, this presentation will offer a thorough overview of common terms, key rating systems and standards and how embracing sustainability impacts everything from cleaning practices to product selection to staff training and customer service.

Learning objectives:
  • Be able to define sustainability and how it differs from 'green'
  • Understand the key benefits of a sustainable organization
  • Identify sustainable products/practices, and how they contribute to sustainability initiatives
  • Learn how staff and end-user education benefits a sustainable mission
