This report is the product of a study undertaken by the Vermont Environmental Consortium, funded by grants from the Vermont Community Foundation and the Redducs Foundation, to survey Vermont’s Environmental Business Sector. The survey established current conditions with respect to environmental business education and training needs and the opportunities and resources available in Vermont to meet those needs. The survey also addressed sustainability practices of businesses and educational institutions and the value to members and potential members of the Vermont Environmental Consortium. Responses were received from 250 firms and 100 educational and training institutions.
