Greening Your Business Handbook

The Workforce Development Council of Seattle-King County hired O’Brien & Company to develop a small handbook for small businesses and non-profit organizations that would provide helpful tips on how to make their office operations more sustainable. The final document includes straightforward tips on the following topics:

Creating a Green Team
Alternative Transportation
Sustainable Purchasing Meetings & Events
Waste Management Corporate Social Responsibility
Energy Conservation Financial Incentives
Water Conservation Carbon Accounting
Healthy Indoor Environments Training Resources
Reducing Office Toxins Taking It Home

In addition, each category contains resources from both the Puget Sound region and around the country.

While originally envisioned for Sustainability Coordinators, the booklet will provide guidance for green teams and sustainability advocates in a wide variety of roles and organizations.
