During the application process, your business will pay a small fee to participate. Depending on the type and size of the business, the certification fee is based on a sliding scale ranging from $300 to $600, while the recertification fee ranges from $150 to $300.
Most of the funding for the Green Business Program comes from our Partner agencies, but the small fee will help offset a portion of costs for time spent conducting workshops and audits and providing technical assistance. The revenue from the fees will also allow the Green Business Program to have a sustainable future and ensure that time and resources are spent on businesses that are serious about the program.
We hope you find the value in becoming a certified “green” business is worth paying a small fee to enable our program to meet the increasing demand of businesses applying for certification.
