- Your tenants will enjoy a safer workplace and lower utility and water bills.
- Programs to save energy, water and raw materials, and reduce waste all save money.
- Developing a positive, proactive relationship with local compliance inspectors can help you avoid liability, fines and other sanctions.
- The program promotes Green Businesses to the public and other businesses for free.
- Your company's community image is enhanced through Green Business certification.
Tell Your Tenants
It doesn't have to stop with your business certification. Individual tenants are eligible to become certified as a Green Business as well. To be a Green Business you must do the following:
- Comply with all environmental regulations applicable to your business.
- Implement a variety of measures to save energy, water and other materials and reduce waste; a sign-up checklist helps walk businesses through this step.
- Allow site visits to verify that your business and property sites meet the above two steps.
- Pledge to continue your efforts to prevent pollution and conserve resources.
