  Better Your Environmental Performance and Your Bottom Line at AGC’s Midyear Meeting
The 2004 AGC Midyear Meeting is quickly approaching, and the agenda is filled with exciting new events and learning opportunities to help contractors keep on top of environmental issues.

Increasingly complex environmental laws, escalating compliance costs, and the financial impact of a violation can affect your company’s growth and profitability.  These challenges, as well as the public’s demand for “environmental stewardship,” are forcing companies to consider new ways to enhance their competitiveness.  Attend AGC’s Midyear Meeting to learn how to better your environmental performance and your bottom line.

Sessions of Particular Interest

  • Save Money, Make Money, and Protect Your Market with an EMS
    Thursday, September 30th at 1:00 PM

Explore the advantages of operating with an Environmental Management System (EMS) and hear about AGC’s new EMS Guidelines and Templates just for contractors.  An EMS will help your company comply with environmental rules.  Moreover, it provides a roadmap to saving money by conserving resources, reducing pollution and clean-up costs, and avoiding penalties for noncompliance; for making money by improving competitiveness and positioning you to work on “green” projects; and for protecting your market by improving community relations and demonstrating your commitment to the environment. 

  • The New Color of Construction—Going Green
    Friday, October 1st at 8:30 AM

Just where is all this interest in the environment going to lead the construction industry? Is it worth learning more about green construction, and is it a profitable business opportunity? Find out what the experts have to say about green construction — what it is, how it may involve you, and where it is going. Attendees will learn the fundamentals, discuss their current and future role, and hear from owners and contractors on the direction that the market is taking.
