|Tools for Tomorrow Sustainable Business Programs|
Sustainable Seattle, with supporting sponsor Bainbridge Graduate Institute, hosts a series of events, called Tools for Tomorrow, providing training, inspiration, and professional networking opportunities for working professionals interested in the area of sustainability.
Tools for Tomorrow events, including "Good Business Workshops," "Corporate Social Responsibility Roundtables," and bi-annual "Industry Innovators Forums," provide networking, resources, and tools for professionals working in or interested in sustainability practices in business.
Implementing sustainable practices throughout an organization is as good for business as it is for the environment, employees and communities. As companies seek higher levels of environmental, social, and economic justice and stewardship, they also see corollary benefits in employee retention, customer loyalty and profits.
The Good Business Workshops provide tools, resources and a guide for implementing sustainability measures within specific areas of businesses. Topics address issues such as regulatory practices in the US and Europe, minimizing building energy and water use, encouraging employee volunteerism, and industry specific topics. This series is aimed at all sizes of business.
The Industry Innovators Forums feature thought leaders and executives from leading organizations implementing sustainability initiatives focused on the triple-bottom line. Open to the whole Puget Sound Regional community of those interested in or currently implementing sustainability measures, these events are held twice yearly.
Through these events, Sustainable Seattle and BGI aim to bring about higher impact, positive change in the Puget Sound Region.
