Sustainability has multiple definitions and is freely used by many to describe their business or community. But how do we really know how far we have come or when we are sustainable in San Diego? With the added expertise of the following special guests, we’ll delve into some of the Metrics that have been developed in the areas of energy, water and transportation.
Clean Tech Initiative Program Manager, City of San Diego
Barbara delivered speeches and conducted training on sustainability-related topics including: Creating a Sustainable Vision, Stakeholder Engagement Methods that Work and Effective CSR Reporting. She is the former chair of the Metrics Task Force of the San Diego Regional Sustainability Partnership (2008-2010) and worked with the Task Force to develop core metrics that could be used to measure the sustainability of the San Diego region.
Please join us and our panel of distinguished guests to discuss how sustainability is measured, here in San Diego and around the world, because when it comes to this topic the, "I don't know where I'm goin', but I'll know when I get there," approach probably will not work.
We look forward to meeting and sharing the best of San Diego's green community.
