Topic: Business and the Environment in Edina Presenters: Carolyn Jackson, Chair of the City of Edina Energy & Environment Commission
and Michelle Horan, Chair of the ECC Business Environment Working Group
Vision Edina, the City’s strategic planning document, showed overwhelming community support for our environment. As the City implements this strategy, we turn to our business community partners to participate in efforts to protect our environment for the next generation.
Three current activities directly involve our Edina businesses: Large Building Benchmarking, Solid Waste Reduction, and a Green Business Recognition Program.
Carolyn Jackson, Chair of the City of Edina Energy and Environment Commission will speak about large building benchmarking; Michelle Horan, chair of the EEC’s Business Environment Working Group will speak about our Green Business Recognition Program, and Andre Xiong from Hennepin County will speak about the County’s new solid waste regulation and programs.
Come curious! The Energy and Environment team hopes to hear from you.
The Sunrise Edina Business Breakfast is a networking event created to bring small to medium sized businesses in the Edina community together for an opportunity to learn more about our local businesses, gain knowledge through education, and share business challenges and opportunities. Be sure to bring your 60 second "creative" commercial detailing your business, upcoming special event, or a product offering you have. And don't forget to bring plenty of business cards for networking!
