The Green Business Partnership (GBP), created by the Business Council and Westchester County, is a mission-driven nonprofit membership organization that gives you the tools to become more sustainable in the areas operation that will make the most impact for your organization and the environment, earn a green business certification, and continue to set and achieve new milestones for years to come. For more than a decade, our program has expertly guided businesses through this process. In recent years, we have awarded official green business certification to more than 65 for- and nonprofit organizations and our program is now a national model.

Special offer for BCW Members:

15% discount on Green Business Partnership membership fees (and an extra 10% for nonprofits!). If you own or lease commercial space, join today and be prepared when your customers, employees and/or regulators ask about your environmental performance.

The GBP sustainability program is fully customizable. Whether you are ready to address multiple areas of operation or just focus your attention where you can make the greatest impact (for instance, reducing waste), you can help preserve a healthy environment, engage employees, save money, and much more. When you join, you will immediately gain access to the GBP’s one-of-a kind online dashboard and schedule your goal-setting session with GBP Program Director Jana Petrikova.

Our relationship with the Green Business Partnership has been and continues to be of great value. We collaborate and receive encouragement towards sustainable practices which makes good business financial sense in the short run and positive company exposure in the long term.”

As a firm that specializes in environmental and socially responsible investing, it was very important for us to “live our values” in the workplace and become Green Business Certified. The Green Business Partnership team provided us with the guidance and support necessary to make it happen. Thank you for your leadership and dedication to the process!

-Tony Rizzuto, President & COO, Pell Wealth Partners
