Executive Director Message: Right and Responsibility - A Sustainable Approach with the Kuleana Green Business Program

Does your business strive to reduce waste, recycle materials, or conserve water? Has your company modified business practices to become more sustainable?

 

If so, you may qualify for the Chamber’s original Kuleana Green Business Program that recognizes business members that promote environmental stewardship and sustainable business practices.

 

Member businesses that participate in this program understand their kuleana (right and responsibility) to create positive impacts in their social and natural environments when operating a business or organization. This includes integrity, commitment and respect with employees, customers, community and the environment.
