2015 S.M.A.R.T. Sustainability Management And Resources Tradeshow

If you are interested in any of the following sustainability trades and/or initiatives, then there is a tradeshow that you must attend:

Landscapers • Architects • Energy Conservation Consultants • Water Conservation • Waste and Recycling Management • E-Waste Disposal Services • Geothermal • Solar Panel Installers • Alternative Energy • Eco Packaging and Janitorial Suppliers… you can see the entire list of vendors by clicking here.

If your business practice is not keeping up with the industry standards, then maybe you should consider playing some catchup. It’s also a good idea to to know what others in the region are doing when it comes to accessing products, developing and implementing sustainable projects and plans. This is a chance to meet some of the experts in the industry, and to learn about best practices in the local and global economies.

“The Western New York Sustainable Business Roundtable (sponsoring the event) is a forum that welcomes companies of different sizes that are striving to institute a more formal sustainability initiative as well as organizations looking to acquire knowledge to improve their planning insights and best practices,” said Mark Shriver, Director of Safety & Environmental Affairs at Curbell, Inc., a founding member of the SBR. “The network will embrace and thrive on the complimentary knowledge of all the members, as we assist each other in launching or elevating our respective programs.”

The 2015 S.M.A.R.T. Sustainability Management And Resources Tradeshow takes place on Tuesday, January 20, 2015 at the UB Clinical and Translational research Center.

“The S.M.A.R.T. tradeshow is a good way for local businesses to get off on the right foot in 2015, learning new ways to increase their efficiency while employing sound environmental practices at the same time,” said Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz. “Sustainable business practices are achievable and increase businesses’ economic viability and value to the community, so I encourage local businesses to participate in the trade show to learn how they can better use sustainable practices. Not only do these practices help the environment, they reduce operational costs as well.”

Free and open to all businesses. Registration encouraged but not required; visit this website. The first 100 to register will receive a free drink.
