About this session:

If you make one small change every month for the next year, what will your results look like in five years? Green Seal provides visuals, real-world stories, and time series forecasting models that illuminate and motivate. With evidence at the ready, you can champion your industry’s shift to greener practices in purchasing, cleaning, and maintenance. Examples: Your green operations protect the health of your workers’ children, reduce city smog, save your local waterways from contamination, and protect carbon-trapping forests in Brazil and Canada. Green Seal’s speaker will also touch on ingredient transparency, waste minimization, and notable chemicals of concern.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn how small changes can be estimated to understand major health protections over time.
2. Identify how very small amounts of chemicals can lead to disease and water pollution over time.
3. Discuss how ingredient transparency is being carried out in new ways and how this can help workers and companies.
4. Understand the common impact reduction goals of Green Seal, LEED buildings certification, WELL certification, Fitwell, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
