Blog : The Green Alliance Hosts Business Preparedness Event

By Craig | Feb 4, 2015 | in

Extreme snowstorms, sub-zero winter temperatures and rising water levels. Climate change is a reality we all must face as individuals and as businesses. To help prepare your business for the unforeseeable, we're hosting Weathering Change, a business preparedness forum on March 12 at 75 Congress Street, Suite 304, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire from 6 - 8 p.m. Complimentary sandwiches, beer and wine will be provided.

In conjunction with Marsha Haines of the American Red Cross and Roger Stephenson of NH Coastal Adaption Workgroup, the event will include speakers from Jenaly Technology Group, The Green Cocoon and Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Northern New England. Each will present their individual business preparedness plans in the event of potentially devastating weather events.

Jenaly's IT expert, MJ Shoer, will discuss the digitization of documents; how businesses can safeguard their most important files should natural disasters and extreme weather cause physical damage to a company. Shoer will discuss backing-up files and Cloud storage as an alternative to storing important documents on-site on servers or as hard copies. Jenaly is one of the most trusted IT services in the seacoast region, as well as one of the greenest. The company provides sustainable solutions to different tech questions and offers alternatives to industry standards, such as methods to conserve energy, digitizing documents to reduce waste and solid ink technologies.

Candace Lord of The Green Cocoon will be on-hand to discuss her company's soy spray foam insulation which can help guard against hurricane weather and offers moisture protection. Coca-Cola of Northern New England's (CCNNE) sustainability manager, Ray Dube, will discuss not only his company's preparedness plan in the event of extreme weather, but also CCNNE's extensive sustainability and recycling programs.
