MCC Green Business Committee: October Meetings
We love to talk about sustainability at MCC! Please
join us to meet your fellow chamber members in the sustainability field and
discuss the following topics.
The Manhattan Chamber of Commerce Green
Business Committee is pleased to commence monthly Green Design &
Construction sub-committee meetings. This meeting is for those in the
sustainability, construction, architecture, interior design or related fields.
This will be an introductory meeting. Please be prepared to introduce yourself
and talk for 2-3 minutes about your business. Please also bring your ideas of
what you’d like to see from this committee!
Sustainability Summit emphasis is on identifying innovative diverse small
businesses and engaging industry leaders and stakeholders who support practical
green initiatives and strategic partnering. Interested groups will be industry
leaders, leaders in corporate America, government officials and multicultural
businesses of all sizes. Discussions will also focus upon sharing successes and
ideas as an incentive to create green partnerships in order to become and
remain viable in the 21st century. What differentiates this Summit from others
is its laser focus on exploring and resolving the sustainability concerns of
both its purchasing membership and large multi-ethnic supplier base. Further,
the Summit will showcase commercial sector match-making with green vendors.
Numerous panel sessions are scheduled to feature prominent speakers in
sustainability at varying levels that will directly address your operations and
share their experiences. The Summit will also highlight stateside innovation of
products and services from businesses that need access to clean tech funding
through its Innovation Arena. The Summit will promote the next generation of
sustainable practices and alternative energy technologies from certified
businesses. More importantly, this Summit is an invitation and challenge to all
enterprises for creating sustainable partnerships for supply chains and
stimulating US economic growth.
