Member in the News- Jean Ponzi on!

Congratulations to Jean Ponzi, Green Resources Manager for the EarthWays Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden and USGBC-Missouri Gateway Chapter Member, for her recent article on! The article “Green Chamber of Commerce Program Helps St. Louis Pick up the Pace” highlights the successes of the St. Louis Regional Chamber’s Green Business Challenge.

As Jean states in the article “The St. Louis Green Business Challenge promotes sustainable thinking and practice in everyday business operations. Now in its fourth year, this St. Louis Regional Chamber program is growing sustainable expertise, pollution prevention and cost benefits across our region’s business community. The challenge has mobilized 145 companies, institutions and local governments — chamber members representing more than 110,000 employees — to understand and implement sustainability strategies every day.”

Jean is in an excellent position to understand the Green Business Challenge; in her role as a Challenge Resource Advisor, Jean visits participants at their workplace, provides problem solving support by email and phone, and assists participants prioritize the green actions best suited to their needs and culture.

Congratulations, Jean on your article, and thank you for your hard work to advance sustainability in our region!
