Getting Started with Environmental Sustainability
Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) March 28, 2009
Skiba Consulting has developed a suite of free resources that can help small and mid-sized companies to embark on the path toward environmentally sustainable business practices.
Companies may be interested in starting on the path toward greater environmental responsibility and sustainability, but frequently don't know how to start. They may feel pressured to act by their clients, internal stakeholders, or as a way to differentiate themselves during these tough economic times.
Zbig Skiba, President of Skiba Consulting stated, "Ad hoc projects can be the first step towards improved sustainability and environmental performance, and as a way of adding to the bottom line. Such projects are not a replacement for an environmental or sustainable business strategy, but they are a great starting point for very small companies, or companies that have previously never focused on environmental initiatives."
To get companies started, Skiba compiled the following resources:
- A white paper on "Getting Started with Environmental Sustainability,"
- A list of recommended articles and books for finding out about sustainable business practices,
- A list of over 175 environmental action items, which can be sorted by department and environmental impact,
- A vetted list of over 100 high quality government and industry websites where you can find out more about specific environmental business issues.
All these resources are available for free download at http://www.skibaconsulting.com.
