To establish and recommend environmental health and sustainability best practices for the Chamber and its members.
The Sustainability Committee's mission is to unite Chamber Members in the pursuit of merging environmental stewardship with economic success. We champion sustainability from a business perspective, empowering members with the tools and knowledge needed to forge a new era of sustainable business in our region. We believe sustainability is not only a responsible choice but also a strategic path to increased cost efficiency, operational excellence, talent attraction, innovation, and long-term resilience and ultimately profitability.
The Sustainability Committee fosters networking and knowledge exchange among members through our quarterly meetings and while showcasing and celebrating businesses prioritizing eco-friendly practices.
The Sustainability Committee is aligned with the current 3-year Strategic Plan of the Chamber to address the following goals:
- High Quality of Life
- Increased community health and wellness
- Continued excellence in K-12 education and vocational education (STEM)
- Increased resilience within communities and across the region for essential infrastructure
