A&WMA Calls for Practical Sustainability Abstracts

The Air & Waste Management Association has issued a call for abstracts for "Practical Sustainability," a conference to be held May 7-8, 2009, in St. Louis, Mo. The conference will focus on sustainability measurement in organizations. "Practical Sustainability" will provide a forum for the exchange of information on how organizations are measuring and demonstrating sustainability in ways that make business sense financially and culturally.

A&WMA is seeking abstracts that demonstrate innovative, scientific approaches to the implementation of sustainability methods. Suggested topics for abstracts include, but are not limited to:

• Strategy development

• Implementation

• Process management

• Data collection, analysis, and reporting

• Recognition, incentive, and offset opportunities

Abstracts of 300 words or less should be submitted to Lisa Breese at lbreese@awma.org for review by Dec. 5. Authors will be notified of acceptance by Jan. 16, 2009.
