SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 25 /CSRwire/ - Sustainable
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.
Learn more about this hot topic from panelists David Pogue, National Director of Sustainability, CB Richard Ellis (San Jose), Clark Brockman, Principal, SERA Architects (Portland), and Kirsten Ritchie, Director of Sustainable Design, Gensler (San Francisco). The panel will be moderated by Becky Brun, Editor, Sustainable Media Inc. Presenting Sponsor is UL Environment; Gold Sponsors include Portland State University and BetterBricks.
