Consumption, Reduction, and Measurement

  • May 27, 2020
  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET

Sustainable Purchasing is all the rage, but it doesn't capture the whole picture of the 5R's: refuse, reduce, reuse, repair and recycle/rot. To make real progress towards reducing waste, businesses must look at their consumption (purchasing) and identify how/where to consume less. This webinar will answer why corporations should care about consumption and waste, and help you develop a plan to reach your reduction targets.
