Many sustainability officers are stretched thin by their duties, which includes a heavy workload of measuring and reporting data, both internally and externally. Despite this potential drawback, data is not the enemy of sustainability leaders. In fact, data and sustainability can go hand-in-hand as you build your case and outline opportunities for future improvements.

In this presentation, you'll learn:
- How data can help you overcome industry trends and make a difference on campus
