With the guidance of the Green Spa Network, Green America is reviewing the standards by which we evaluate spas when they apply for our Green Business Certification. Please comment on our standards for evaluating sustainability in the spa industry below.

 

Background

Since 1982, Green America has reviewed over 8,000 small businesses in more than 50 industries. Over the years, we gathered our cumulative expertise into a set of comprehensive standards and developed a certification methodology that is measurable and transparent.

We take a holistic approach to green business and look for evidence that a business demonstrates deepening commitments and ongoing progress in three main areas; Environment, Social Equity and Accountability.

We group our standards into two types – required standards and general standards. The required standards represent best practices in a company’s core business at each certification level. These standards are built into the required questions in the online certification assessment whose completion leads to the business earn their Green Business Certification in Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Please review our standards, provided below, and use the comment form that follows to give us your input.
