Green Business Peterborough

GB

The Greater Peterborough Chamber of Commerce and GreenUP have created the Green Business Peterborough Program. The program recognizes businesses that have pledged to and have implemented strategies to reduce waste, save energy, and adopt sustainable business practices.

Any business can become greener. A wide variety of sustainable practices can be put in place that will result in significant improvement to the workplace. Energy efficiency and other sustainable practices frequently offer long-term cost savings, allowing businesses to contribute to the community while becoming more economically competitive.

The Chamber of Commerce generates clean solar electricity through the OPA MicroFIT Program.
