April SFTA Webinar – Regenerating Water: How Water Footprinting, Building, and Restoration Tactics Can Bolster the Water Supply
Wednesday, April 29 @ 11:00 AM MST
“Conservation!” is frequently companies’ mantra when thinking about water and sustainability. However, water sustainability strategies and actions can go much further than that, and are explored in SFTA’s April Knowledge Network Session: “Regenerating Water: Water Footprinting and Stewardship Tactics.”
Regenerating Water features speakers from Bonneville Environmental Foundation, Biohabitats, and SFTA Member General Mills. Together, these experts will explain how water stewardship can expand and drive companies’ strategic approach to water sustainability. Additionally, Bonneville Environmental Foundation has partnered with SFTA to offer pro-bono baseline water footprint calculations and strategic water stewardship insights to two SFTA members! Case studies and promotional materials will be made to highlight the thought leadership shown by these companies.
Register for the session here. Please note if you’re unable to attend the live presentation, a recording will be provided to registrants after the session.
