If you are truly serious about energy management and sustainability this is a learning  opportunity you will not want to miss. Topics of discussion may include:

Sustainability and the challenges of buy in and continuing commitment 

Make sure everyone is engaged, all processes represented – define metrics set realistic goals (start with  low hanging fruit)  celebrate success.


How quality and sustainability will evolve to become a prerequisite to business  

Remember ISO 9001? Certification was virtually a universal requirement for manufacturers to conduct business. The pressure to implement ISO 14001 will likely be even greater. Quality and Sustainability become one


The need to reduce greenhouse gases is becoming more urgent everyday.

Don’t wait on the government or your utility to solve the problems. Individual initiatives can start right now

Anyone that uses power wants to use less.  The demand for energy management professionals is exploding.

Energy conservation is being driven by economics (saving money) or the environment (saving the planet) or both. 

Driving sustainable business practices down your supply chain presents a huge opportunity.

Collaborating with customers and suppliers represent an opportunity for rapid exponential improvement in environment and bottom lines.
