SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 25 /CSRwire/ - Sustainable
 Media 
Inc. 
today
 announced the 
release 
of 
its 
Green 
Office
 Guide,
 a
 comprehensive
 resource
 produced
 by 
the
 editors 
of
 Sustainable 
Industries
 magazine
 for 
business 
leaders
 striving 
to 
integrate 
sustainable 
business
 practices 
into 
their 
operations.



The
 Green 
Office 
Guide,
 now 
in 
its 
third
 edition,
 offers
 well‐researched
 and 
verified 
information
 about 
manufacturers, 
retailers
 and 
service
 providers
 that 
have 
a 
proven 
track
 record
 for
 delivering 
products
 that 
meet
 high 
standards—not 
just
 for 
their 
performance,
 but 
for
 their
 minimal impact
 on
 both 
the
 environment
 and
 society
 as 
a 
whole.
 Covering 
everything
 from
 setting
 a 
baseline 
to
 creating
 purchasing 
policies 
to 
adopting
 a
 green
 lease, 
the 
publication
 aims
 to 
serve 
businesses
 of
 all 
kinds
 and
 at 
all
 stages
 of
 implementing
 a
 sustainability 
plan.


"This 
is 
the
 most
 comprehensive 
resource 
available 
for 
businesses 
that 
are 
committed 
to
 incorporating
 sustainable 
business
 practices 
into 
their 
everyday
 operations," says
 Brian 
Back,
 Founding 
Editor 
and 
Publisher, 
Sustainable 
Media
 Inc.
 "We 
are 
thankful
 to 
all 
of 
our
 sponsors
 for 
their
 support
 of
 this
 guide
 as 
well
 as 
their
 leadership 
in 
the 
sustainable 
business
 sector."

In
 conjunction 
with
 the 
release 
of 
the 
Green 
Office
 Guide,
 Sustainable
 Media 
Inc. 
is 
also
 producing 
an
 exclusive
 Sustainable
 Industries
 Webinar 
focused
 on 
the 
human 
impact
 of 
green
 office
 spaces.
 While 
hard
 to
 quantify, 
research
 by 
leading 
architecture 
and 
building
 management 
firms 
indicates
 that
 green 
office
 spaces
 have
 a 
positive
 impact—and 
not
 only
 on
 the 
systems,
 but
 also 
on
 the
 people 
connected 
to 
green 
buildings.
