Greening the Bottom Line Conference

Organization(s) Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description A statewide business environmental conference, entitled Greening Up Your Bottom Line, was held on September 19, 2006. Topics included energy efficiency, green marketing and reporting, environmentally preferable purchasing, and greening the corporate culture. The conference was co-sponsored and planned by businesses, non-profit corporations, VT DEC, and SBDC and attracted 194 attendees.

Green Mountain Power, a partner in the Vermont Business Environmental Partnership (VBEP), approached the Partnership and several other businesses/organizations with the concept of offering a one-day conference for Vermont businesses to share ways to reduce environmental impacts and improve bottom lines. Vermont businesses that attended the conference became eligible to apply for small "Green Up" grants to support energy efficiency or environmental improvements at their facilities.

Building on the success of last year’s conference, the second annual “Greening Up Your Bottom Line” statewide business sustainability conference was held in Burlington on September 25, 2007 at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center. the conference attracted over 150 attendees.

The third annual “Greening Up Your Bottom Line” business sustainability conference will be held in Burlington on September 26, 2008 at the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center. This year’s conference will feature sessions on energy efficiency, alternative heating systems, calculating a carbon footprint, buying local, and business greening opportunities for general office operations, printing jobs, and electronic equipment purchases.
