Sustainability is a powerful tool for improving business foresight. It helps people foresee emerging threats and take advantage of new opportunities. In the solid waste field, sustainability is often framed as zero waste. Designed for sustainability professionals, International Society of Sustainability Professionals' distance learning workshop, Zero Waste Strategies, will examine what this trend means for your organization.

Over four weeks, engage in four interactive webinar discussions oriented to stimulate creative thinking and solutions. Explore the themes causing the greatest controversy in our society that require the most creative solutions: waste to energy. Gain an understanding of the major waste trends in the current system. Critique the implications of those trends. Explore a new set of initiatives that can challenge our basic mental models of our thinking. Learn about organizations that have already achieved zero-waste-to-landfill. Grasp waste challenges: waste-to-energy and when to recycle / when to landfill. Discover the best strategies for sustainability, going forward.

Paired with an interactive on-line classroom site, International Society of Sustainability Professionals' workshops offer access to current research and other professionals working in the field.

Meets on-line on Tuesdays (Oct 5, 12, 19, 26) at 12:00PM Pacific Time-USA for 60-90 minutes.
