Is your sustainability team missing out on opportunities to save money and time, opportunities that would boost the effectiveness of its initiatives? ISSP’s December webinar provides a practical guide to some of the most proven sustainability frameworks and tools out there designed to improve the day-to-day operations of sustainability professionals in a corporate setting.
Join Saman Baghestani, Project Manager of SHIFT - the MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative's online platform of curated tools and frameworks - for a workshop designed to sort through sustainability’s “wild west” of best practices. Participants will discover improved methods of performing common and necessary tasks such as LCA analyses, benchmarking, preparing for specific reporting formats, and a range of valuation and ROI analyses.
Webinars are free for members, and all registrants will receive a recording of the live event. Sign up today!
