Network '08: Sustainability, Responsibility, Profitability
The theme and discussions at Network’08 center around some of the most pressing topics facing our industry today. One such issue is the speed-of-light movement that is environmental responsibility and “Going Green.” The concepts driving sustainability and responsibility permeate your business on a 360º scope: customer demands, employee expectations, vendor partnering, government regulations, job opportunities. In order to compete effectively in these days of “Green,” ASA has identified areas in which it can support its members through education and opportunity. Several seminars at Network’08 speak directly to these topics, including:
Conserving America's Water Resources: Business Sense,Water Sense, Common SenseEPA Administrator Stephen L. Johnson will speak about why water has become a national priority and how the EPA’s WaterSense program, of which ASA is a partner, seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by promoting water efficiency and enhancing the market for water efficiency products.
