Public concern about the environment is higher today than ever before. Research shows that a company's environmental reputation will rival quality and brand name as a criterion used by consumers. Receiving an Emerald Award will help you communicate your commitment to environmental protection to your customers and set an example for others to aspire to. By promoting your company's environmental practices, you can attract new customers, reinforce repeat customers, and boost employee morale.

Emerald Award Certificate winners will have their business name and address placed on our web site. That way, consumers can “shop” the list to find businesses who provide needed services and who care about the environment. For example, if a consumer needs auto repair services, they can check the list of Emerald Award Certificate winners and select an auto repair company in their neighborhood. After all, how better to reward these “green companies” than by giving them your business?
