The Environmental Education Center, located at Regents Row A116, will host a webinar screening from 11 a.m. to noon Friday, July 22, about "Data and Sustainability: How the Right Data Create Success.? Many sustainability officers are stretched thin by their duties, which includes a heavy workload of measuring and reporting data, both internally and externally. Despite this potential drawback, data are not the enemy of sustainability leaders. In fact, data and sustainability can go hand-in-hand as we build our case and outline opportunities for future improvements.

Learn how data can help overcome industry trends and make a difference on our campus. You will learn ways data can build constituency around sustainability goals, the value of verified data and peer context, and how reporting burdens can be eased.
