Federal Green Challenge Webinar – March 5, 2012
Baselines & Goal Setting
This month’s topic is on setting goals and establishing baselines under the Federal Green Challenge, an initiative of EPA’s sustainable materials management program. EPA will offer guidance on how to get data on your performance in six target areas: Waste, Electronics, Purchasing, Energy, Water and Transportation. We’ll also hear from a founding partner in the Federal Green Challenge – Joint Base Lewis-McChord – who is actively tracking progress towards some very aggressive environmental goals. By the end of our session we hope you’ll feel prepared to go out and get your baseline and goal information, or be armed with some new tips and tricks if you already have.
