"The Fall Boot Camp that included Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Sustainable Return of Investment (SROI), and Sustainability Integration classes offered through EarthShift Global provided unique perspective and insight into these burgeoning fields. I was pleasantly surprised by such an engaging and adaptive training which was applied to each participant's discipline through in-class examples. I recommend this training for anyone who wants to improve their understanding of LCA, SROI and Sustainability Integration programs which can be immediately applied to environmental and economical-friendly initiatives within their own company."
