Are you a Clean Air Champion yet?

Chamber launches program to help businesses become Clean Air Champions

 

The Salt Lake Chamber is launching a program to help Utah businesses enhance their commitment to clean air and benefit their bottom lines. Businesses can become Clean Air Champions by enrolling in the program and indicating practices already in place or by implementing new Clean Air programs.
 
The Clean Air Champion program is a private sector approach to motivate Utah businesses to make decisions that improve our air quality and strengthen our economy. Poor air quality hinders corporate relocation efforts, places additional regulatory burdens on business, increases health care costs and places Utah’s federal highway funding at risk. The business community can make a difference.
 
See below for how you can become a Clean Air Champion.

Goldman's promised land: Salt Lake City 2012

SubArticle Image

Some 2,000 miles away from the hustle and bustle of Wall Street, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., has found an unlikely second home: Mormon country.

Low taxes and a cheap but well-educated workforce persuaded Goldman to go on a hiring binge in Salt Lake City. The bank now employs 1,300 people here — putting Utah’s capital city on a path to become Goldman’s fourth-largest global operation, behind only New York, New Jersey and London.

At a time when the Wall Street firm has cut thousands of jobs elsewhere, Goldman plans to grow in Salt Lake City.
