Craft the Ultimate Business Case for Sustainability
The second edition of the Sustainability ROI Workbook is now available! Since the release of the first edition in May, Bob Willard's groundbreaking Sustainability ROI Workbook has been downloaded over 1,700 hundred times. Like the first edition, the second edition is free, open-source, and downloadable. It's part of a toolkit specifically designed to help sustainability practitioners build the comprehensive business case for sustainability that the C-Suite will love.
This is the kind of all-in-one, versatile tool that ISSP wants to make available to our community. That's why we're running a two-hour online course on the Sustainability ROI Workbook on September 14th. Join Bob Willard live for a comprehensive walkthrough of this groundbreaking tool. Don't wait - register today!
Thank-You to ISSP's Summer Intern
As summer draws to a close, we reluctantly bid farewell to our wonderful summer intern, Jill Howard (pictured on the left with ISSP Executive Director Maureen Hart), who is returning to the University of New Hampshire for her senior year where she is working on a BS in Business Administration in Social Innovation and Enterprise. Jill was a great help organizing the ISSP Volunteer program to run more smoothly. We will miss her great ideas and hard work but know that she will continue with more direct involvement in sustainability efforts at UNH where she is actively involved in the Trash2Treasure campaign on campus.
