S.D. Green Chamber Becomes U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce
The Green Chamber of San Diego County has morphed into the U.S. Green Chamber of Commerce. “We have accomplished tremendous growth since our founding in 2009,” said CEO David Steel. “Expanding our presence by becoming the U.S. Green Chamber allows us to bring our message of advocacy and sustainability to help more businesses across the country.” To increase its reach and awareness, the chamber is actively creating strategic alliances with like-minded groups such as E2-Environmental Entrepreneurs Organization, chambers and workforce partnerships, said Steel.
“There is a strong sense of urgency from business leaders everywhere to learn best practices for sustainability,” said Lee Stein, E2’s Southern California chapter director. “With its rapid membership growth, exceptional events and recognition from other well-respected organizations, the U.S. Green Chamber is poised to make a significant impact on the environment and these businesses’ bottom line.”
Steel is president and CEO of Smarter Light, a LED lighting company that helps individuals and corporations replace their current lighting with environmentally gentle LED lighting. He also is a founding board member and CFO of Conscious Humanity. Previously Steel served on the board of directors of the San Diego Entrepreneurs Organization.
