"Business Sustainability," which will be taught from 10 a.m. - noon on Wednesdays through Dec. 1, is designed for all types of businesses. Achieving both goals is possible, said instructor Wendy Weaver, who will teach the nine-week MSU Extended University course.
Weave said she plans to walk business owners through energy assessment, water conservation, purchasing habits, fuel consumption, green cleaning, office waste reduction and other strategies. All students will complete a sustainability plan for their business by the conclusion of the course.
Weaver is a licensed professional civil engineer, a sustainability consultant with Green Stone Consulting and a LEED accredited professional. She is actively involved with the Montana Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council as a board member and Green School Chair.
The course is appropriate for businesses of all types and sizes, including those that are considering sustainability plans for the first time and those that are already implementing sustainability strategies.
Cost of the course is $149. Enrollment is limited and early registration is encouraged.
