Green Alternatives in Action (GAIA) is primarily a sustainable development consulting firm whose focus is building sustainability into the operations of both public and private sector entities in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T).
The main objectives of sustainability are to minimise the environmental impacts of any operation through improved energy, water, waste and CSR management programmes. This may lead to reduced operating costs, enhanced image, increased customer loyalty and encouraging employees to become engaged and involved in their work, thereby lowering costs associated with high employee turnover.
Essentially, GAIA promotes sustainable development as an integral and economically viable option for our local economy by offering cost effective business services and solutions to our clients, fostering strategic partnerships, increasing education and awareness and encouraging environmental and social responsibility across all levels of stakeholders.
We specialize in:
- Planning, development and implementation of sustainable development projects
- Sustainable event management for trade shows, conferences, award shows, workshops, etc.
- Environmental training and information management
- Realistic strategic services
