What is Sustainability? – Sustainability is a widely used term that has come to mean taking into consideration the social, economic and environmental aspects of our actions, as well as recognizing the inter-relationships between these aspects. Sustainability includes protecting our environment and preserving natural habitats and biodiversity, but it is also about promoting a healthy and engaged society and thriving along-side a thriving economy. Sustainability requires balancing opportunities and constraints, and taking a long-term view so that we are able to reach our maximum potential now and future generations are able to do the same.
The Sustainability Committee meets the second Tuesday of each month from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the chamber office.
Acknowledging a changing world, the Sustainability Committee seeks to find and promote the appropriate balance between the economic, environmental and social aspects of the community to ensure sustainability for current and future generations. More and more businesses wish to incorporate sustainable “green” practices in their day to day operations. The Sustainability Committee aims to assist these businesses with education, support and recognition through workshops to educate chamber members.
