Happy New Year!          




I don't know about you, but I'm not good at fulfilling New Year's resolutions. Maybe it's because I too often try to do it alone without the right support network to uphold my efforts.


Support networks are important in encouraging sustainable, responsible business practices, as well. Without reinforcement and encouragement, it's hard to keep "fighting the good fight".


NHBSR provides all kinds of events in order to offer a wide range of educational opportunities to support businesses just beginning the journey to sustainability to those demonstrating leadership. The most favored element of all events is the networking - the ability to learn and share CSR/sustainability experiences consistently ranks number one. So in 2013 we'll continue to focus on helping you develop the networks you need to fulfill your resolutions!


Check out the events we have planned already!

  • January 15th - Sustainability Roundtable at Schleuniger, Inc., Manchester
  • February 6th - Member Social at Courtyard by Marriott, Keene
  • February 13th - Breakfast With The Best at the Radisson Hotel, Manchester

I'm looking forward to seeing you early in 2013!

Climate Counts recently released its 6th round of company scoring relative to climate change efforts. Climate Counts Director, Mike Bellamente shared " We're seeing brands continue to demonstrate tremendous progress on sustainability - in some cases reducing absolute emissions while growing their business. However, there is still much work to be done to bring climate change back to the forefront of public consciousness." View the report here.
