Bridging The Gap’s Green Business Network is a network of environmental professionals and business people who all share a common goal: making sustainable business decisions that protect our natural resources AND make good business sense.
Basically, we’re a group of people who share a passion for all things sustainable in the workplace. For some of us, sustainability is our job. We’re sustainability coordinators, company green team leaders, environmental consultants or offer a green service or product. Others of us want to see our workplace become more sustainable or have a personal passion for going green. Since 1999, we have educated, connected and inspired hundreds of metro area businesses to implement sustainable initiatives in the workplace.
