Become a Certified Green Business...
Today’s successful businesses are progressively working towards taking on a greater role of environmental
responsibility with the adoption of a “green” business model. Many are inspired to do so by increasingly popular
customer interest in environmentally-friendly practices and products, and particularly the resulting support and
loyalty that they show companies and businesses that are “green”. Businesses are also reaping in added benefits,
which include reduced operational costs and the intrinsic value added within an organization by adopting a vast
array of green business practices.
But how will your customers and stakeholders know about your efforts towards environmental responsibility and
trust they are genuine?
While there are many businesses that make these efforts towards environmental responsibility, how do customers
get to know these companies, or recognize and trust these efforts in the market place?
This is where the Institute for Green Business Certification can help.
IGBC provides your company or business with a certification program that authenticates your green efforts. Following a specialized
audit and certification by one of our representatives, the Institute will endorse your company with the internationally recognized
“Green Business Certified” seal of certification, which you can proudly and genuinely display as a demonstration of your commitment
and responsibility towards the environment and the community.
