Answer 12 questions to differentiate your business today

Do you believe business can be a force for good in the world?

Does your business provide a positive impact on employees, the community and the environment?

If so, certify your business today!

  • Get public recognition for your good deeds
  • Attract customers and employees who share your values
  • Become more competitive by identifying efficiencies, avoiding risks and differentiating your business
  • Energize your employees and drive innovation

Certify your business in 4 easy steps:

  1. JOIN to create an account (you can see the survey questions before joining but your results may not be saved if you don't Join first).
  2. Take the 12-question SURVEY which takes about 10-15 minutes. You'll fill out a profile and then you simply click the practices you are doing and write in any practices you think might qualify. Watch the progress bar to see what level of certification you might qualify for. Contact us if you would like help going through the survey.
  3. An expert at the Sustainability Alliance will review your results, confirm your level of certification (bronze, silver or gold) and suggest ideas for action. (If needed, we may also ask clarifying questions or for some documents to support your claims.)
  4. Promote your certification through PR, social media, etc. and connect to other certified organizations. (The Alliance helps by publishing press releases and congrats on Facebook and tourism-based businesses are highlighted on two Sedona/Verde Valley websites. We also suggest ways you can get more recognition for this award.)
