EDGEWATER - Tricia Murray is used to working at an HSBC bank in the prairies of Canada's Saskatchewan province.

But for two weeks, the bank paid its assistant manager to drop what she was doing and work with a kind of green found in the remote forests of Maryland.

HSBC sent 12 employees to work with researchers at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center in Edgewater as "climate champions." They were directed to learn about climate change and come back with ideas to make the company more eco-friendly.
