The Institute for Sustainable Development has partnered with Cleveland-based BrownFlynn, a corporate responsibility and sustainability consulting firm that advises companies on how to integrate responsible practices into business strategies. BrownFlynn’s competence in serving larger organizations will serve to complement the Institute’s Green Plus program, which focuses on smaller enterprises. “The team at the Institute for Sustainable Development is enthusiastic about partnering with BrownFlynn,” said Chris Carmody. “BrownFlynn’s expertise will help Green Plus participants become more competitive through better sustainability strategy and goal setting, brand management, stakeholder engagement, and other internal and external sustainability communications,” concluded Carmody.
“Aligning with Green Plus makes great strategic sense for BrownFlynn,” said Margie Flynn, co-owner of BrownFlynn. “It enables us to expand our resources for smaller companies while providing a management certification process that challenges small business owners to adopt sustainability in a meaningful way.” In addition to their consulting practice, BrownFlynn also offers corporate sustainability education and training through which they teach companies how to triple their bottom line – environmentally, socially and economically – through workshops, webinars, on-site training, conferences and a variety of other venues.
Keep an eye out for whitepapers and blog posts from BrownFlynn on the Green Plus Web site, and Sustainability 101, a webinar to be co-hosted by the Institute and BrownFlynn early next year.
