Sustainability Training 2014

Yesterday, members of the ALCC’s Sustainability Partners met for their annual training & education seminar.  Designscapes Colorado is proud to be a member of this program again this year.

Sustainability is not an all-or-nothing proposition.  There are take-aways for every company and opportunities to education our clients on the practices that we practice within our company to reduce our carbon footprint.
