Co-founder Alexia Marcous interviewed by 2degrees

What a pleasure it was being interviewed by Ben Carmichael of 2degrees on my work with the Green Chamber of Commerce.

A theme of the discussion was collaboration, where I shared how the GCC has partnered with Green America and B Lab to share expertise and best practices. We also talked about the Green Chamber’s membership in the American Sustainable Business Council to counter the anti-environmental lobbying voice of the National Chamber of Commerce on climate change legislation. I was glad to give a resounding yes when Ben asked if we also partnered with organizations like, which I see as necessary to keeping attention on climate change and having businesses be a driver in making sustainability an essential part of our economic recovery.

Collaboration happens to be what 2degrees is all about. An online community of over 12,000 sustainability professionals from over 90 countries, 2degrees connects like-minded businesses and public sector organizations from around the world to share expertise, connect with new partners and find new customers.
