MONTGOMERY, NY — A new partnership between the Orange County Chamber of Commerce
, Orange County Community College
, a green-rated brands and services company, will assist local businesses to gain certification as green and sustainable, according to the MidHudson News
"The business community is often viewed as not committed to being green or sustainable," said Chamber President John D''Ambrosio. "In fact, some of the really far out environmental types feel that this chamber wants to blacktop from Newburgh to Port Jervis and certainly is not the case."
The new initiative should help to dispel that, D''Ambrosio said.
