Published Thursday, March 29, 2018

The Fox Cities Chamber’s monthly educational program, Business Breakfast Bytes, will focus on sustainability in the workplace in April. A panel of experts will provide education on the basics of sustainability, the benefits of implementing sustainability initiatives into the workplace and the simple ways to incorporate a “green” lifestyle at work.

People may be unaware of the various categories relating to sustainability as well as the smaller efforts that can be made to lessen the impact on the environment. In recognition of Earth Day in April, attendees will hear from a local small business on how they have taken on the mission of becoming the most environmentally responsible credit union in the nation. There will also be a discussion on the process of becoming a “Travel Green Wisconsin” certified location.

Join Heather McCombs, Sustainable Management Instructor from UW Oshkosh, as she leads the session. The panel of experts will include Kelle Hartman, Children & Family Educator from Green Bay Botanical Garden and Roni Kasperek, Sustainability Manager from Evergreen Credit Union.


"This discussion will address how sustainability applies to three key areas of your business: facilities, operations, and management, and what the costs and benefits of implementing them are. Learn how to get your business started with a green team and look at some third-party rating systems that your business can choose as a guide through the process," shared session facilitator McCombs.


Business Breakfast Bytes are a monthly business educational program focused on providing our small to mid-sized business members across the Fox Cities Region with education and resources addressing top business concerns.
