The Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) is committed to driving Conshohocken forward to become a more environmentally friendly, conscious, and sustainable community. We believe that in order to achieve this it takes a community-wide effort involving residents and local business leaders.
What is the Green Business Recognition Program?
The EAC has developed a program to incentivize and recognize local businesses that incorporate green, sustainable practices. These businesses serve as community innovators and lead the way in environmental sustainability. We invite all businesses to join this program and work towards achieving Green Certification.
What is Green Certification?
When your business goes green, you will earn points for implementing sustainable practices according to the EAC’s green criteria. We encourage you to take steps to go green in four focused areas:
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Conservation
- Community Participation
Each criteria and practice has point value. When a business reaches a certain number of points, it falls within one of the levels of Green Certification. These levels include a certificate and window decal to display in your business. It also includes various rewards.
|One Stars||35 points|
|Two Stars||50 points|
|Three Stars||75 points|
A comprehensive list of criteria/practices within each of the four focus areas can be found on the Green Business Recognition Program Application.
