San Diego Green Chamber of Commerce

Greetings,

The San Diego Area Chapter of the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce is embarking on exciting times! We will have filed our Articles of Incorporation by the end of January and are pursuing our 501(c)(6) non-profit status. As we are fast approaching active operating status, we are reaching out to San Diego area members of the U.S. Green Chamber, existing sustainable businesses, and organizations that are interested in becoming more sustainable. This is your opportunity to:

  • network with other responsible local businesses
  • stay informed of the latest sustainability strategies
  • share best practices, and their results
  • participate in educational programs
  • join forces in policy advocacy
  • showcase your accomplishments in creating a more sustainable San Diego

HISTORY

The San Diego Green Chamber of Commerce was founded in 2007 and grew to over 500 members. In 2011, the Board of Directors opted to take the organization to a national platform and changed the name to the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce. In 2014, realizing that they needed to maintain local leadership, programming, and events, the USGCC initiated a Chapter system. The San Diego Area Chapter, U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce is a result of this new structure. While we are autonomous from the USGCC, we operate under a formal Chapter Affiliation Agreement.

PLAN

Our first order of business is to build a robust membership. We seek to serve and benefit all organizations, from sole proprietors to non-profits to multinational corporations that are interested in becoming more sustainable. We have adopted the triple bottom line definition of sustainability, where practices are good for your business, good for the environment, and good for the community.

We anticipate hosting monthly networking and educational events, and publishing a regular newsletter highlighting member accomplishments, local events calendars, tips and trends, and a legislative watch. Our online member directory will be a great resource for promoting your sustainable business and locating other responsible businesses in the San Diego area.
