Santa Fe’s Green Chamber of Commerce works to build a sustainable community of local businesses that are environmentally sound, economically viable and socially responsible through action, advocacy and education.
Advocating for green public policy and issues that support sustainable business is a year round part of what we do. Our Chamber is involved at the city, county and state levels promoting legislation that benefits our community and our membership.
We actively lobby for community solar power, clean energy and energy efficiency, as well as issues that promote green jobs and a better business climate in Santa Fe.
Also core to mission is our Think Local approach to doing business. Local business owners are our communities greatest contributors, offering stable employment and a diversity of goods and services, with less environmental impact than their corporate, big box competitors.We publish and annual business directory that goes to tens of thousands of New Mexicans because money spent locally stays local.
