The Business Case for Sustainability

On May 5, 2011, Contra Costa County Climate Leaders Program worked with True Market Solutions to present a workshop on the Business Case for Sustainability. We explored ways for cities to work with their businesses to save money and increase profits while acting in a sustainable manner. Presentations from cities, businesses and consultants provided information on strategies, opportunities and case studies. Participants worked together through a World Cafe break out session to brainstorm and work on priorities.
