Green Chamber

Please take some time to learn about Green In Gwinnett Area’s partner “The Green Chamber of The South“:

Whether you are aiming to reduce your environmental footprint, strengthen your relationship with consumers, streamline your operating costs, or gain market share. Developing a sustainable business strategy makes good business sense not just to a company’s bottom line, but also to employees, partners and the community.

The Green Chamber of the South is a place where you can meet others who share your interests, do business, profit and gain the satisfaction of supporting efforts to promote the growth of sustainable economies in the Southeast.

About The Green Chamber of The South:

Founded in 2008 in Atlanta, Georgia, the Green Chamber of the South supports the growth and success of sustainability in businesses and encourages innovation and adoption of clean technology. We are a non-profit organization.

The Green Chamber of Commerce facilitates connections and collaboration between companies, government, NGOs and the community, supporting the growth of green companies. Our vision facilitates the success and growth of green businesses and establishes a hub for green commerce in the Southeast.

Our members comprise businesses and organizations in the Southeast.  They are engaged in diverse industries including energy, education, manufacturing, government, trade, communications and marketing.

Business leaders recognize the rapid growth of the Southeast green business movement and their long-term growth opportunities are tied with the region’s environmental challenges.  Some of the key issues facing businesses today revolve around water scarcity, transportation, and energy costs.   An increasing number of businesses understand meeting growing environmental challenges requires adopting new sustainability strategies.  Furthermore, a growing number of businesses require partners and vendors to engage in the sustainability process and develop their own green initiatives.
