Just  Add WaterSense to Your Energy Efficiency Efforts

If you’re just focusing on energy, you may be leaving money on the table. Join us to learn how to incorporate water into your energy management activities by assessing your facility’s water use and identifying areas of water waste. Find out what it takes to make your building more water-efficient from simple, low-cost changes to larger-scale improvements and how WaterSense tools can help you start maximizing your savings and building performance.

CONF: April 28, 2017 (11:00 – 6:00 pm):

This forum will be hosted at the Courtyard Marriott in La Vista, NE.
CONF: May 2 – 4, 2017:
Triple Regional P2 Roundtable

Why Attend:  Researching on the internet only takes you so far. Meeting in person and talking with other professionals lead to connections and insights that you might not otherwise gain. Serendipitous discoveries made in face-to-face encounters lead to innovation. You will leave with new ideas, connections, and tools to move your projects forward.

Who should attend: Technical assistance programs (TAPs), tribal environmental representatives, and others working in the sustainability field attend both full conference days for training, new program ideas, and to learn new skills.

Those new to pollution prevention/source reduction concepts attend the P2 101 Preconference workshop, as well as both full conference days.

CONF: September 6 to September 8, 2017:

As food waste continues to become a mainstream problem, the need for resources and information about how to reduce it from the start, recover it if possible and where it should go become essential. The Midwest Food Recovery Summit will focus on ALL of the recovery options.
