The Shelby County Chamber’s Existing Business and Industry Work Group launched the Green Business Program to celebrate Shelby County businesses that are committed and engaged in environmentally responsible operations and practices.
The Chamber’s Existing Business & Industry Work Group reviews the applications that are submitted and collectively approves these companies. The Green Business application is based on a point system in the categories of Waste Prevention, Recycling, Purchasing, Energy Conservation, Transportation, Water Conservation, and Pollution. Each applicant has to receive a minimum of 20 points total to be designated as a “Certified Chamber Green Business.” The purpose of this program is to recognize Shelby County businesses that are committed and engaged in “green” business practices. The program will recognize these companies each year at the annual Industry Appreciation Event.
If your company is engaged in green practices and is interested in applying for the Chamber’s Green Program Certification or for further questions please contact Jackson Pruett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 663-4542, ext. 104.
