The Stanislaus Green Team was launched by the Modesto Chamber of Commerce in November of 2012. The purpose was to create a nexus between commerce and environment, and the desire of the Modesto Chamber to work collaboratively, searching for regional solutions to challenges facing Stanislaus County. Simply put, assisting businesses in Going Green will not only reduce their costs of doing business, but it will also help the environment and move the Stanislaus County economy forward.

  • Monthly Educational Meetings (3rd Thursday monthly)

The Stanislaus Green Team meets at the intersection of Environmental Stewardship and lowering the cost of doing business.
