San Francisco, CA. October 27, 2016 — REV®, a San Francisco-based company that provides sustainability education and services, has recently announced a new half-day REV Business Sustainability Workshop in California to help businesses, organizations, and cities capture more value from their sustainability efforts.

REV Business Sustainability Workshops are taking place:
November 30, 2016 at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles
December 6, 2016 at the Bently Reserve in San Francisco
January 25, 2017 at the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose

Confirmed speakers include sustainable business strategist and GreenBiz Group chairman Joel Makower at the Dec. 6 San Francisco event; and Materials Team Leader (acting) & Green Team Chair Kendra Martin and a panel of her senior management colleagues from UTC Aerospace Systems on Nov. 30 in L.A. Invited speakers include representatives from Disney and Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Using the same peer-learning model as REV’s comprehensive Sustainability Circle® program, the interactive workshop features brief presentations, expert speakers, group exercises and discussions, and take-home resources. Participants will learn methods to identify untapped areas of opportunity in energy efficiency, waste, water, and carbon reduction, with employee engagement and behavior change as key focus areas.

The half-day program is also designed to provide ample opportunities for networking during a pre-session continental breakfast and a buffet lunch at the conclusion of the workshop.

REV developed the half-day program in response to research and experience which found that while many organizations have already initiated some form of sustainability program, nearly all are limited by challenges in management support, staff engagement, ideas and resources, or access to a peer-level cohort for motivation and inspiration.

The workshop will be especially useful for senior business leaders seeking to build momentum; generate more energy, resource, and waste savings initiatives; and increase sustainability engagement within their organizations.

“With the rapid pace of business, companies and business leaders clearly need more immediately actionable and convenient means to improve the results of their sustainability efforts and investment,” explains VP of Sales Ann O’Neill. “This new workshop, along with current and future REV offerings, makes it easier for organizations to access and benefit from our expertise without a huge time commitment. It’s an excellent way to ensure that 2017 sustainability programs are poised for success.”
