Bigger Green Things to Come
March 12, 2014 at the 10th annual REXPO Exposition, the Stanislaus Green Team and the Modesto Chamber of Commerce were awarded and recognized for their leadership in advocating, educating and assisting businesses to reduce the cost of doing business through environmental stewardship throughout the Central Valley.
The REXPO Exposition is organized by the Stockton Chamber of Commerce and the Valley Green Team in an effort to unify Central Valley businesses and organizations to collaborate to the tune of a common themed message, “Environmental Stewardship does and will continue to reduce the cost of doing business”.
The registered portion of the event this year had over 300 attendees and over 1,500 attendees joining the REXPO vendor booths throughout the day. The viewing exhibits were free and open to the public before and after the morning panel discussions and a keynote speaker addressed luncheon.
The Valley Green Team’s mission is to collaborate with Central Valley Chamber of Commerce’s to start up their own Green Team program so that the State of California will meet it’s goal of reducing Green House Gas Emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. There are currently 4 green teams that have been established due to this effort. They include the San Joaquin Green Team, Merced Green Team, Stanislaus Green Team and Avenal Green Team. These Green Team programs not only help reduce Green House Emissions but they improve their local economy by keeping jobs local and reducing the cost of doing business. The Stanislaus Green Team and the Modesto Chamber of Commerce are very proud to be a part of this valiant effort and we look forward to bigger green things to come.
