The Green Products and Services Expo is an initiative of the St. Louis Regional Chamber’s St. Louis Green Business Challenge, which was created in 2010 to help spread sustainable business practices through the St. Louis region. This year, 82 companies, representing more than 100,000 employees collectively, are participating in the Challenge by working to implement strategies to reduce energy, waste, water and impacts on our region’s environment. The St. Louis Regional Clean Air Partnership is a proud sponsor of this year’s Challenge.
The St. Louis Regional Chamber is a broad community of leaders united in pursuit of economic prosperity throughout the entire bi-state region. Our aspiration is for St. Louis to be one of the nation’s Top 10 regions in prosperity, and our purpose is to inspire a greater St. Louis. Together, we work to make St. Louis a more attractive place for people to live, work and invest. Growing the region’s green economy and advancing sustainability are important parts of reaching our goal and fulfilling our purpose.
The St. Louis Regional Clean Air Partnership was formed in 1995, led by the American Lung Association, St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association, East-West Gateway Council of Governments, Washington University and others, to increase awareness of regional air quality issues and to encourage activities to reduce air pollution emissions.
