County Businesses Invited to ‘Go Green’

County businesses can learn how to “go green” by participating in the Somerset County Business Partnership’s Green Challenge.

Run by the partnership’s Sustainable Somerset Committee, the challenge is designed to “assist business decision makers in identifying opportunities to increase profitability through initiatives that improve energy efficiency, improve recycling efforts, conserve resources, and contribute to the well-being of the community at large,” according to a release about the program.

Through the challenge, the committee is “looking to reward, promote, share, and demonstrate the creative ways Somerset County businesses are achieving a competitive advantage by implementing innovations and sustainable practices,” according to the release. “Participating companies will be given a unique networking opportunity with green-oriented suppliers and customers and will receive guidance from sustainability experts with proven ability to reduce costs and enhance profits through a wide range of green solutions. The ‘Challenge’ will bring visibility to a company’s efforts and provide a unique opportunity to share sustainable best practices with other like-minded businesses owners and operators.”

“The more businesses that we can persuade to participate in the ‘Green Challenge,’ the greater will be the positive impact that we have on the environment,” Sean Moreland, chairman of Sustainable Somerset’s educational task force, said in the release. “We have made the program easy to participate and easy to implement. In the end we will create new business leaders in the sustainability arena while providing public visibility for a company’s accomplishments.”

To participate, call Takeena Deas at (908) 218-4300, or visit the program’s Web site.
