The Offset Project provides an on-the-ground approach to corporate social responsibility that is both realistic and sustainable. Businesses not only need sustainability in their board rooms but also need to bring the message to the customers through event and community initiatives.
The Offset Project consults with local business and event companies to:
- Build social responsibility programs
- Develop training and curriculum support
- Lead both management and staff-level workshops and trainings
- Create Green Tag Programs
- Green Events
- Develop sustainable management systems
