Small Business Environmental Assistance Workshops

Organization(s) Vermont Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Vermont Small Business Development Center
Project Description The Vermont DEC and VT Small Business Development Center collaborated on developing, marketing and conducting two series of business environmental assistance workshops held in the past year (2002-2003). Attendance totaled 335 for the 11 workshops that were held regionally. There were six workshops covering hazardous waste management, primarily for conditionally exempt generators. Additionally, 192 business people attended workshops on Stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit-Explained for VT Manufacturers.

Participant evaluations from these workshops indicated that over 89 percent rated them good to excellent in meeting their expectations; for value of the information; and in the effectiveness of the presentations. Additionally, participants said they would share or train over 1394 additional people with the information presented, and 74 percent said they planned to make positive changes in environmental management at their businesses, as a result of these workshops. It is likely that the workshops will be repeated in future years.
