Climate change…the rising cost of fossil fuels…potential water shortages…threats to biodiversity…toxics…There are a lot of “inconvenient truths” out there.
Here’s a truth that’s easier to swallow: New York City is one of the greenest places in the country. Our high-rise offices and housing make us energy efficient. We use mass transit and drive less than people in other cities. Increasing environmental sustainability is one of the cornerstones of the City’s PlaNYC. But all of those inconvenient truths mean we can’t rest on our laurels.
Today, we’re all awash in information about green building, greener energy and green business. Most of what we see in the media, however, isn’t of much use to small-to-mid-sized New York businesses. And while large companies have been realizing some of the bottom-line benefits of sustainability for some time, smaller companies are just starting to follow suit.
We’ve created this “Green Chamber” website to help small-to-mid-sized businesses achieve some of those bottom line benefits, while doing the right thing for the City and the global environment.
