Leonardo Academy and Synapse Get to Work on Sustainability in Syracuse, NY
Leonardo Academy and Synapse Sustainability Trust are working together to promote sustainability in Syracuse, New York. The kickoff event for this cooperation was the Leonardo Academy participation in the 8th Annual Green Building Conference in Syracuse, sponsored by Mid New York Chapter of the USGBC and the College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF). Leonardo Academy President Michael Arny presented a four-hour workshop (sponsored by Synapse) on sustainability for organizations, "Organization Sustainability: A Step-By-Step Approach."
This workshop addressed:
· Organizational Sustainability - The "Big Picture" View
· Green Buildings
· Existing and New Buildings
· Emissions - Footprints and Offsets
· Procurement and Operations
· Reporting - Telling Your Sustainability Story
Leonardo Academy also presents this training course as a webinar or as onsite training for companies and organizations.
Planned joint activities between Leonardo Academy and Synapse include providing additional sustainability training in Syracuse, working together on the greening of the historic train station being renovated by Synapse, and other sustainability projects. Synapse Sustainability Trust is a nonprofit organization founded by the Synapse Risk Management LLC, a national wholesale insurance provider.

Walmart Launches Sustainability Index

Few companies have the resources, capabilities, or necessary draw to elicit widespread environmental change. With bottom lines, deadlines, and ever-changing customer demands, sustainability concerns are often placed on a back burner, or if implemented internally, do not reach very far outside the organization. Although many mission statements include green components, few companies have taken definitive action to put their suppliers to work on achieving sustainability goals.
