The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Raritan Valley Community College is partnering with New Jersey SBDC to help small businesses initiate or expand their “green” practices.
With assistance from a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grant, established businesses will receive onsite sustainability evaluations, pollution prevention recommendations and resources for making improvements. Businesses who participate in this program will be recognized on the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry for their efforts in adopting or increasing their sustainable practices.
Small business owners also may take advantage of no-cost consulting focused on sustainability practices for their company. Whether business owners are seeking basic information, help with the registry application, or a strategy to help them deal with an existing environmental concern, the NJSBDC can provide assistance from a counselor who is knowledgeable in all facets of sustainability, pollution prevention, toxics mitigation, and disaster preparedness.
For additional information, contact the SBDC@RVCC office at 908-526-1200, ext. 8516 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Any messages or emails should include that business owners are seeking information about the NJ Sustainability program.
