    About this session
    As the cost of doing business continues to go up companies must continue to find ways to reduce operating costs while maintaining quality. The cost of doing business is not just tied to operating expenses. Staff costs typically far exceed operating expenses, and attracting or keeping business is critical as well. Greening your business is a three-prong approach that includes people, planet and profits. We will look at each of these elements and how they can be integrated in to your business philosophy and plan to save time and money while increasing employee satisfaction and profits in a way that is also good for the environment, often known as the triple bottom line.
