Sustainability in Business

We were pleased to see a great turnout at Wednesday's Sustainability Forum meeting!

According to Lisa Lillelund of Mango Networks (right) and Chad Stern (below), it's important for your business to have a sustainability strategy for the sake of both the environment and the success of your company. Young people prefer to work for companies with sustainability initiatives and consumers are beginning to demand more eco-friendly products.

And for added perspective on Wednesday's presentation check out Analyst Bob Eastman's SMB Research blog.

Coming up, we'll take a look at how different constituencies are tackling sustainability. Meetings at the CleanTech Innoventure Center give us a good sense of clean-technology, but that's just one piece of the puzzle.

In August, we'll learn more about how our towns and communities are addressing the issue, and in September, we're joined by one of the region's top sustainability leaders.
