Green Marlborough is proud to accept the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce “Green Award” in recognition of our environmental mission and efforts in the community.
We are a group of residents and business people who are thinking globally and doing our part locally to help make a healthier environment. Our mission is to raise awareness and engage business, residential, and government groups and individuals. We create proactive initiatives that support environmental sustainability that include issues on energy, water, transportation, land use, waste, and community involvement.
Green Marlborough has become a leader, a resource and an incubator for local environmental efforts. Our successes are the result of the collaboration among many residential, municipal and business groups and individuals who are working together to protect our environment.
Together we have accomplished groundbreaking achievements, for example:
Marlborough’s first Energy and Environmental Inventory in 2006, the Sustainability Action Plan in 2008, and the Green Communities Report in 2009.
Marlborough’s first Energy and Environmental Taskforce and Sustainability Action Plan Taskforce
Municipally-owned traffic lights changed to energy-efficient LEDs
Community Events such as the Marlborough Earth Day Fair, Solar and Energy Star Tour, Walk with Green Marlborough, Bike Marlborough, and the Stream Teams
Green Marlborough local access TV show, and the Green Marlborough website
As a result our waterways are cleaner, people are making more environmentally sustainable choices, and we are protecting and enjoying our local natural resources, too.
Green Marlborough’s founder also created the first Massachusetts Green Career Conference in Marlborough in 2009. As the Green Economy emerges, this conference brings attention to the wonderful resources we have in Marlborough for future business growth and job development. This conference was an excellent forum for experts in government, business, and education who provided green career guidance and industry updates. This conference attracted 300 people and was sold out 5 days in advance. Green Marlborough celebrates everyone’s effort to protect the environment, in large and small ways, every day and every year. We look forward to continued work with residents, businesses, and the government to protect our health and environmental health.
Thank you to the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Commerce for this annual “Green Award” in recognition of Green Marlborough’s efforts in the community.
