New Fort Walton Beach Certified Green Business Program
Starting in January 2013, local business owners will have the opportunity to let their customers know that they doing their part to make our community more sustainable by becoming a Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce Certified Green Business, allowing consumers to shop with confidence that rigorous criteria have been tested and met to avoid “greenwashing”, a term for inflated or misleading environmental claims.
Becoming a part of this exciting program is easy and has a very low cost of entry. Businesses fill out and sign an electronic checklist that will be displayed on the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce website under the Environment Committee link and send it back to the Chamber for verification. If the business meets the 25 minimum sustainability measures and submits an application fee of $25, it will be certified as a Greater Fort Walton Beach Certified Green Business.
Members are authorized to use the FWB Certified Green Business logo for their company’s website and will receive a Certified Green Business window sticker that clearly states the year of certification.
