Businesses can get help with creating their own sustainability strategy

Friday, February 18, 2011

Stephen McCloskey, head of the Sustainable Business Leadership program for Shoreline Community College, is looking for small business owners who would like help creating a long term sustainability strategy for next quarter.

The Sustainability Strategy and Metrics course will require students to make an initial sustainability assessment of a business, to be able to explain and analyze that assessment and to develop a sustainability action plan that can be communicated to stakeholders of the business. Business partners will gain input and feedback regarding sustainable business practices that they may choose to apply or not while students will gain real world experience.

They are also developing a service-learning agreement for students which will include a confidentiality clause. Any business practices that a participating business partner would like to be kept private will be.

For information on how to participate contact Stephen McCloskey's assistant Amber Skidmore at 206-533-6690 or by email,

Stephen McCloskey will be speaking at the North King County Green Business Conference March 23rd in the "Marketing in a Green Economy" session.  See previous article.
