Vermont Launches Green Dairy Cohort and Green Brewery Cohort

Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has launched a Green Dairy Cohort and Green Brewery Cohort. “Businesses participating in the Cohorts connect and learn with their peers to improve environmental performance. DEC and its partners provide the structure, resources, and support to help businesses develop data-driven solutions that work for their industry and Vermont’s environment,” said DEC Commissioner Emily Boedecker. Over the course of a year, participants meet for workshops, information-sharing, and networking. Participating businesses have access to funding, in-depth assistance including energy analysis, and training in topics like wastewater pollution prevention. Participation is free and open to any businesses in brewing, dairy products manufacturing, or specialty foods sectors.
