WasteCap’s Omaha Green Team Roundtable on September 14th to be hosted by Deffenbaugh Industries, Inc.

What are businesses and organizations doing to reduce their environmental impact? What successes are they experiencing? What obstacles are they facing? Bringing businesses together to share this information is the focus of WasteCap Nebraska’s regional Green Team Roundtables. Many times the answer to the issues they are facing is sitting across the room. The Green Team Roundtable provides business a forum to do just that.

Deffenbaugh Industries, Inc. is hosting WasteCap Nebraska’s Omaha Green Team Roundtable on September 14th at University of Nebraska Omaha’s Mammel Hall, Executive MBA Suite, 6708 Pine Street, Room 100K. The roundtable is from 11:30 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. It is free to attend. Deffenbaugh is generously providing lunch, as a result, attendees must RSVP. To RSVP or for questions contact Rozz Beckman with WasteCap Nebraska at 402-436-2383 or at rbeckman@wastecapne.org by noon September 12th.

There will be networking, a green business presentation, by Deffenbaugh Industries’ Sales and Marketing Manager, Cynthia Bryant. Bryant’s presentation will cover Deffenbaugh’s environmental services and her recent trip to Costa Rica as part of UNO’s Executive MBA Program. While there she had the opportunity to study Costa Rica’s efforts to balance economic development with conservation. Although Costa Rica’s rainforests were exploited in the 1970’s for economic development, Costa Rica today provides a model of sustainable development, carefully balancing economic and environmental interests.

In closing, Julie Diegel, WasteCap’s Sustainability Coordinator, will facilitate a few introductory exercises in sustainability planning.
