basic understanding of how businesses can start with the program by looking at how much energy they are using, waste they are producing and their transportation use.

One of the most attractive things about using Climate Wise is that businesses that do so are bound to save themselves money.

There will also be a bicycle tour that will journey through a few of the City of Fort Collins latest progressive efforts toward improved sustainability.

Rosemarie Russo, Sustainability Coordinator for the City of Fort Collins joined me for discussion about the big day, and she related how

The sustainability training, that’s just a tutorial for companies who are trying to manage their resources…It’s just going to be a quick one hour training. We’ll have laptops there. The idea is that companies can come in with a flash drive and we’ll give them a free database and we’re going to help explain how people can manage their energy use and their solid waste and recycling, and then just give them some ideas about how to set goals. That’s open to Climate Wise Partners or any businesses in town who are trying to manage their resources and save some money.
