Sustainability at Work
What is a sustainable business?Flagstaff Sustainability Program
A sustainable business is one that supports the well-being of current and future citizens by maintaining a strong economic profile and a healthy, self-renewing environment. Many businesses are using the “triple bottom line” as a measure of success.

The triple bottom line is an equal measure of social well-being, economic prosperity, and environmental quality. A business operating in this fashion is “sustainable” or maintained indefinitely.

The Flagstaff Sustainability Program has developed a Sustainable Business Guide to assist businesses. The Guide identifies sustainable business practices that make good business sense and benefit the community, the environment and the business itself.

Sustainability Assessments
The Sustainability Program is offering sustainability assessments conducted by business students at NAU as a way of introducing the Sustainable Business Guide. These assessments are similar to a basic energy audit and are designed to serve as an educational opportunity for students while providing feedback to businesses about low cast steps to take to improve operations. For more information or to schedule an assessments please contact the Sustainability Program at (928) 213-2154 or via email.
