Join ISSP’s Greater St. Louis Chapter Sustainability Drivers on September 25th from 3:45pm - 5:00pm CT for a presentation and discussion on Motivations and Examples from the European Energy Efficiency Transition!
We will discuss the main drivers and concrete actions being taken by small businesses in Europe, with a focus on how businesses in STL can follow suit. Case studies will explain how European companies are conducting carbon footprint and life cycle assessment calculations, or Natural Capital Accounting, as methods for “visualizing” where you currently stand. This approach identifies impact hot spots, and this information can be used to develop an action plan. Primary take away will be showing how Europe is finding value in a greener business model that is increasingly becoming mainstream.
Morgan will show that the first step is doing some kind of measurement/calculation (with many options for this besides just LEED), and how the information can be used to develop a strategy. Through retail chain carbon neutral transition examples, which will be relevant for small businesses, she will demonstrate how to get started and what can be learned from her European experiences.
