What are the benefits of Green 101?

Companies who attend CIRAS' Green 101 workshops will have a basic understanding of the fundamentals of green manufacturing and take away easy-to-implement tools to begin the green manufacturing journey the next day. Application of these techniques can result in cost savings and increased sales along with having a new way to engage customers, employees, suppliers, and other stakeholders.
