How it Works

Wondering how all of this works?  Well, there is no “one size fits all” solution for sustainable business.  New Leaf gets to know your business before your project begins so that we both have an understanding of what will work for you.  An initial introductory meeting will allow us to get acquainted and discuss your sustainability goals.  This meeting comes with no obligation for us to work together and will determine if New Leaf is a good fit to help you reach those goals.  Once we both have a clear picture of what it is your business hopes to accomplish, New Leaf will work with the appropriate representatives from you company to effectively work toward your goals.  This means something different for every business and every project.  It might start with a tour of your facility to gain better understanding of your operations and to identify what sustainable practices you are already implementing.  Or maybe we will conduct a survey of your employees to gain insight into what procedures will work best for your crew.  Perhaps your project is already clearly defined and we are able to jump right in and start taking steps to improving your environmental impact.  Throughout  Continue Reading »

My aim is to help businesses determine what makes sense for them in terms of sustainability goals, and then help them achieve those goals.
