Waco Green Business Network
How to add your company's name to this list:
Five steps to sustainability
Step One - A business sustainability checklist was developed to help companies get started. Businesses may consider incorporating 78 activities into their day-to-day activities. The majority are both good for the environment and cost-saving measures.
Step Two - Greater Waco businesses are engaged in great things in sustainability. Tell us what your company is doing by completing the Green Business Survey. It follows the checklist in areas of waste prevention, recycling, purchasing, energy and water conservation, involving stakeholders, transportation and operations.
Step Three – The Greater Waco Chamber will recognize companies that participate in the Green Business Survey and demonstrate green efforts in all categories. Businesses in the network will be highlighted in the Chamber publications (print and online), articles placed locally and out of market and a window sticker and electronic logo.
Step Four – Waco Green Business Network companies will be invited to join WacoGreenBusiness.com, a business networking Web site to share ideas. It is a great way for business owners and sustainability coordinators to discuss "How did you do that in Waco?"
Step Five - Waco Green Business Network companies will be listed on Gen Green Life national online directory. Cutsomers are looking for green businesses. The directory provides awareness for companies in the Waco Green Business Network.
The Greater Waco Chamber recognizes that sustainability is good for the environment AND good for business.
