Join the U.S. Green Building Council - Illinois Chapter's Rockford/Northern Illinois Branch for Your Carbon Footprint: How to Step More Lightly

What is your carbon footprint? And, more important, what can you do to step more lightly on the world around you? This course explores the definitions of carbon footprint. It also discusses how to calculate and improve your carbon footprint while improving sustainable business practices. Carbon foot print calculations are discussed in the context of an organization's focus on energy. This focus can have both operational and product design components. In this presentation, the link is made between improving carbon footprint and saving the organization significant dollars. As a result, attendees will be ready to have an informed discussion on the subject.
