The Green Business Partnership (GBP) is a voluntary assessment that recognizes businesses, business organizations and local governments for their environmental stewardship and sustainable practices. Offered through the University of Florida/IFAS Pinellas County Extension, it encourages conservation of resources, waste reduction, energy conservation and cost savings.
After completing the self-evaluation check list (program application) available on this website, Pinellas County staff will provide support to implement many green practices and help maximize the ability of businesses to operate in sustainable way.
When all criteria that are applicable are implemented, the Green Business Partnership will be awarded and the business will be eligible to use the Green Business Partnership logo and window decals will be provided. This badge of honor can serve to highlight green business practices to those customers that would choose a Green Business among competitors.
As a Green Business Partner, participants will have access to professional advice and training, listing on the Green Business Partner website and special recognition by Pinellas County.
