GreenCertified_SGT_Title
Going through a Stanislaus Green Team assessment checklist and visit shows that your company or organization has completed green policy and is currently implementing green practices in each area of environmental conservation. These areas include: Solid Waste, Energy Efficiency, Water Conservation and Air Conservation. Completing these practices will show a documented effort that your company or organization is striving to be compliant with California’s AB32 bill. The goal of this bill is to reduce green house emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. The completion of the checklist will qualify your company or organization to be recognized with a “Green Sustainable Business Certification”. It will help market your leadership in Recycling, Policies Practices, Air Conservation and Water Conservation. There are no fees involved and it is completely voluntary.Below are many of the marketing benefits from obtaining a Stanislaus Green Team certification on behalf of the Modesto Chamber of Commerce.
