The Arizona Green Chamber of Commerce — the only statewide green chamber of commerce in the country — will launch its first local chapter, located in Phoenix, next week.
The chapter already has a number of objectives for accomplishing the state chamber’s mission “To promote the success of businesses committed to environmental and social responsibility.” These objectives include fostering networking between green businesses, educating businesses and the public on sustainable practices and providing the public with local resources for businesses committed to sustainability and environmental-responsibility.
The Green Chamber of Commerce has members in 16 different cities in three states. The chamber claims to speak for the “new voice” in commerce, which promotes “a future where businesses work to protect our planet, not corrupt it.”
