Strategic Sustainability Consulting (SSC) is excited to announce a new webinar, Implementing a Green IT Program. This interactive online event, taking place on Thursday, May 1, will focus on the practical steps to improve your organization’s environmental impact and performance.
“There are huge environmental impacts associated with information technology,” says SSC President Jennifer K. Woofter. “Smart companies realize that pursuing a Green IT program can lower carbon emissions, divert e-waste from landfills, and help achieve a dramatic reduction in energy costs. It’s a win-win situation for their financial bottom line and the environment. The trick now is making it easy to implement such a program.”

SSC is pleased to present this webinar in partnership with Jessica Vreeswijk, founder of GreenITTools.com.
