MDEQ Offers Low-Interest Financing for Small Business Pollution Elimination Projects

Pollution reduction is great for the environment, and it’s also great for business. Projects to slow or eliminate the creation of pollutants translate to reduced business costs, both from increased efficiency and from avoided environmental compliance costs. As an added bonus, these projects create an opportunity for public goodwill and the enhanced reputation that often comes with improving sustainability.

The Department of Environmental Quality can help, offering low-interest loans to small businesses for pollution-reduction projects.

Environmental Rules Input Needed

The Michigan Chamber is seeking input on what state environmental rules need to be changed or deleted. The Office of Regulatory Reinvention is seeking recommendations on what rules its Environmental Rules Advisory Committee should review. Make sure to share your recommendations on how we can help reinvent Michigan’s regulatory system. There is a limited window of time to provide feedback.
