Environment & Business
The impact of environmental issues like global warming are now visible to almost everyone, and the consequences around the world are more and more dire. What is more difficult to see is how each of us can contribute towards a solution when the problems seem so big and global. But we are convinced that the combined efforts of individuals and individual businesses can make a difference and give a significant example to the world. Many small steps can become one big step. To evaluate possibilities and guide our members towards a better environmental stewardship is the mission of the Environmental Committee.
