E4S helps you implement sustainability

Entrepreneurs for Sustainability continue to offer cutting edge workshops that can help us turn our building and manufacturing processes away from wasteful, mindless practices that harm our planet and our environment. This one looks very interesting and very useful:

Introduction to SI Workshop (SI = Sustainability Implementation Group)

Date: Thursday, November 1, 2007

Time: 9:00 am -11:30 am

Location: E4S Connection and Learning Center
540 E. 105th St., Suite 213 Cleveland, OH 44108

Price: $50 / organization (We recommend that 3-5 individuals from your management team attend)

What is an SI Group?
A eight month, peer-based, action focused, learning process that increases the rate you can learn new technologies and processes and the probability you will successfully implement what you learn. Develop relationships with other entrepreneurial leaders who will support you during and after the SI Group ends its journey.

Sample of Monthly SI Group Topics:

  • Principles of Sustainability – such as Natural Capitalism, Whole-Systems Design and more
  • Developing an implementation plan based on successful case stories
  • How to engage your employees in the process
  • Waste elimination
  • Green procurement
  • High performance, green building
  • Energy efficiency, renewable energy and alternative fuels
  • Curriculum for each SI Group will be custom designed to meet each group’s needs.

Entrepreneurial business leaders and their top management team (3-5 participants/organization) who want to learn how to implement sustainability principles in their buildings, processes, product, markets and company culture.
