FORT COLLINS, Colo., Oct. 10, 2017 — Fort Collins, Colorado-based Business Sector Media LLC (BSM) today announced the formation of the Environment and Energy Leaders Institute (EELI).  The Institute will serve as an important cornerstone in BSM’s diverse portfolio of nationally-recognized research, conference, news and information providers.

Unique in its field, EELI will focus on providing thought leadership, best practices and peer learning to commercial and industrial (C&I) decision-makers who are responsible for environmental management, sustainability, EHS, energy, cost savings, business value, process improvement, increased productivity and waste reduction.

EELI is now the convening arm of BSM’s Environmental Leader and Energy Manager Conference (ELEMCON), and is developing the conference’s workshops and agenda with a focus on networking and sharing best practices.

EELI now manages the annual professional honors that Environmental Leader (EL) and Energy Manager Today (EMT) award to honor leading practitioners in C&I environmental, energy and sustainability management.

EELI now develops the best practices, data products and Webinars that EL and EMT readers have come to expect and depend on from the publications.

“Over the past decade, EL and EMT have earned reputations as the most-useful-and-objective online platforms for C&I practitioners in the environment, energy and sustainability spaces,” says Paul Nastu, president and founder of BSM. “As we have now expanded into face-to-face events, EELI ensures that the best practices and thought leadership we provide across all of our platforms has a singular, consistent focus on pointing our audience towards ready-to-go solutions and best practices that are tangible, replicable, measurable and transferable”.

Mr. Nastu observed, “We have the timeliest topics covered in our best practices and events and an impressive list of organizations currently implementing sustainability and energy management strategies and solutions, led by our online and conference advisory boards, that we turn to for insider knowledge.”
