In case you haven't noticed, fuel prices are on the rise again. Of course, it would be hard not to notice. Even those among us that have chosen to travel exclusively on other forms of transportation likely find it hard to miss the rote commiserating from the rest of us every time we have to pay a dime more at the gas station. Multiply your sense of resignation at the gas pump by a thousand and you'd have a sense of how corporate fleet managers are feeling these days.
Sustainability isn't a trend anymore. It's basic business. It's the next great phase of economic evolution. And while many companies are cashing in on sustainable business trends, it's not enough to just talk green and look green. Businesses have to BE Green.
Like many business people, you may be intrigued by sustainability. You may be enticed by the savings offered by lean operations. You may want to know why your clients or customers are spending their money on green products and services. Maybe you want to save the planet. Maybe you plan to start small, and see where it goes from there.
Whatever compels you, the BE Green South Sound Blog will provide you with all the tools, information, free and low-costs resources, connections, and inspiration needed to propel your own sustainable business initiatives.
You'll learn what the heck a carbon footprint is, and how to manage it. You'll learn about transportation and energy-use alternatives that any business can use. You'll learn simple strategies that will save you money, sell products, be more productive, drive profits and, most importantly, contribute to a sustainable business future.
Whatever you're interested in learning or achieving, we're going to help you make sense of it all. Be Green. It's easier than you think.
