The Research Triangle Park is celebrating Earth Day Monday, April 23rd, partnering with the Triangle Green Business Challenge Program in their Kick-Off Event at the Research Triangle Park Headquarters.
April 23, 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm
RTP Headquarters, 12 Davis Drive
Festivities will include guest speakers, food, beverages and raffles!
The Challenge encourages local businesses to improve their efficiency and sustainability, offering free training and resources to participants throughout the course of the event (April 23 – December 7, 2012) towards achieving their own desired goals. The eight-month program concludes with an award ceremony in December recognizing the most successful businesses.
Being greener in business is something we all profit from. Not only do participants in these programs save money by improving resource quality and efficiencies – we all benefit. First year participants in a Chicago Challenge achieved saving 55,000 metric tons of CO2 and cut back on $5 million in energy savings! Clearly these types of efforts have far-reaching effects both environmentally and economically…making us all winners!
