Minimal cost. Substantial ROI.
The total fee for two people from your organization to attend six full-day workshops, including one-on-one coaching, is $9,000. However, through generous funding from California utility providers — in many cases up to two thirds of the total fee — we are able to offer the Sustainability Circle program at a greatly reduced cost to qualifying organizations.
Find out if you qualify for substantial savings.
With rising energy costs, increased competitive pressures, customer demand for transparency, and new regulations mandating efficiency and conservation, there is no better time to invest in sustainability.
“The Sustainability Action Plan is specific and unique to each organization – it quantifies the savings in energy, water, waste and production costs and results in substantial savings. The Circles have led to a robust exchange of ideas, leading to solutions, better communication between the City and its businesses and organizations, and new approaches to sustainability from all parties.”
