Making Sense of Green Business Certifications

By: | Posted in: Above & Beyond | (One Comment)

Over the past two decades, businesses and the public have been confronted with a myriad of green business certifications. Some green business certifications are geared to helping distinguish products for retail consumers, but many large buyers of business goods and services require or at least favor B2B certifications as well. Businesses considering pursuing a green certification have a large number of factors to consider:

  • Is a given green business certification truly useful?
  • Affordable?
  • Credible? 

The Environmental Help Desk helps you understand what and who is behind different certifications — and presents information to help make decisions about what certifications may help your business the most.
