Is your West Palm Beach business up for a little friendly competition – especially if it could result in some positive exposure, save you money and help promote sustainability in your local community?

Then check this out: The City of West Palm Beach is partnering with ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives), Office Depot, and Green PSF (Per Square Foot) to host a program that recognizes the greenest businesses in town and connects these businesses with free resources to reduce energy, water, waste, and save money. The year-long contest has been dubbed as the Green Business Challenge and it will be launched in early August at the e4 Rethink Business forum as part of the City of West Palm Beach’s 2014 Sustainability Summit Series.

It won’t cost you a dime to join and the rules are fairly simple: Participating businesses will be ranked based on the number and type of activities they complete as part of the challenge. This program is free to join and recognition will be provided via the City of West Palm Beach and its Office of Sustainability websites, storefront labels and plaques, as well as a Green Business Challenge award ceremony to be held in 2015.

Consider the attention your company will draw by participating in the challenge – not to mention bolstering its green business credentials with customers and obtaining free resources to help reduce waste and save money through smarter energy and water usage.

Recently, West Palm Beach was named one of four winning cities in the national Green Business Challenge. For more details, click here.

The City of West Palm Beach is now signing up businesses to become members of the Green Business Challenge. To add your company to the roster or for more information about the competition, contact Dmitriy Shvets at 561-804-4983 or dshvets@wpb.org.
