This program will help you evaluate your business’ basic sustainability footprint, connect to local green resources, receive recognition for your leadership, and build affinity and loyalty among customers and employees who support environmentally responsible practices. Beyond the checklist, practices identified can also be used to update your business plans, operation plans, employee orientations, and marketing materials.

Out of a total 65 point checklist, your businesses can be certified at a Bronze, Silver and Hold level. Throughout the program,  businesses will receive individualized consulting, support and networking opportunities.  Upon  completion, businesses will receive marketing promotion and recognition for their leadership through the Green Leaders Directory and Awards Ceremony.

This program is open to all businesses and nonprofits in Pima, Santa Cruz, Yuma and Cochise Counties. For all independently owned and operated businesses in Arizona, Local First Arizona will process your application. Scholarship opportunities and additional support services available for local businesses upon request. For all businesses not locally owned and operated in Arizona (though still based in Arizona), Tucson 2030 District will process your application. Applications will be processed on a rolling basis.

El programa también está disponible en español.

We are committed to supporting you and your business needs, and look forward to working with you.
