Businesses for the Bay is an Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay membership association designed by businesses for businesses. Its mission is to encourage businesses throughout the Chesapeake region to find voluntary, innovative, and measurable solutions to improve water quality and the health of the Chesapeake Bay rivers and streams, and to raise public understanding of the valuable role these business members play in environmental restoration. This program provides businesses with a forum where they can make their voices heard, share best practices, facilitate environmental stewardship volunteer opportunities for employees, potentially save money, reach social and sustainability goals, and promote environmental efforts that are important to them, their customers, and their communities.
