USHCC Green Builds BusinessThe USHCC Foundation will select 20 small businesses from Washington D.C. to participate in two one-day workshops on best practices adopted by business owners to lower operating costs, increase revenues and motivate workers by incorporating sustainable efforts into their overall business models. The two-day training will take place at the Kellogg Conference Hotel at Gallaudet University on Monday, August 1st and Tuesday, August 2nd. The program will be led by Bill Roth, Founder of Earth 2017 and the trainer for the program.

“The USHCC has seen great effort put into green business plans by those who have participated in the program thus far,” says Javier Palomarez, USHCC President and CEO. “I have no doubt that the selected business owners in D.C. will do the same. We are also thrilled to have the opportunity to work closely with the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Mid-Atlantic Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on this important initiative.”

At least one business in D.C. will be selected to receive up to 24 hours of one-on-one green coaching by Bill Roth to formulate a green business plan or implement a green project that holds the potential of creating jobs, growing profits and reducing emissions this year.
