Eventbrite - Environmental Impact Assessment Workshops

What to Expect

The workshop will be an opportunity to continue or complete your organization’s Environmental Impact Assessment and get your Environmental Score. Regional Sustainability Initiative staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and walk you through the process. Other program members and B-Corps will be there to share best practices. As this is an interactive workshop, please bring your laptop and have at least started the assessment.

Who Should Attend

The workshop is open to all Regional Sustainability Initiative members and we welcome one attendee from each organization. Before arrival, please register for the Environmental Impact Assessment here. If you’re stuck on a few questions, this workshop will allow the space to review. We recommend that attendees be familiar with their organization’s key processes but there is no need to know everything. Questions can be marked and returned to later.

The Environmental Impact Assessment is a powerful tool that helps to evaluate your organization’s current environmental performance and will help identify the areas of improvement and action.
