The corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative is a growing trend in enterprises of all sizes. As a small or medium sized business (SMB), it is especially difficult to know where to begin when making impactful changes in your business and manage the sustainability landscape. Often SMBs often don't have people trained in sustainability practices. Adrienne will inform expo goers about the business imperatives of sustainable practices and how tools can help define and cultivate their programs to reduce impact, save money and meet CSR targets.
