Greening Your Business
Resources for New Hampshire businesses to implement green practices that protect the environment and save money.
The term “green” has been used to describe many things, but when we talk about “green” in reference to business, we are talking about businesses going above and beyond regulatory requirements to protect the environment. By taking those extra steps to eliminate the use of toxic chemicals, reduce waste, save energy and conserve water and other resources, businesses can greatly reduce their impact on the environment.
The New Hampshire Pollution Prevention Program (NHPPP) can help businesses implement strategies that protect the environment and save money at the same time. For more information and a free consultation, contact the program at [email protected].
