GREEN STEP OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

Green Step, an initiative of the Barrie Chamber, was officially launched on May 20th at an event held at Bodystream. The mandate of the committee, comprised of a group of dedicated volunteer organizations from within the Chamber membership, is to educate and promote sustainable growth and conservation practices within the areas of environment, energy and the economy, by engaging the Barrie community.

Green Step has developed an ECO Business Checklist, a tool that businesses can use to assess their current level of sustainability, determine where they can make improvements and identify potential savings. Committee volunteers have gone onsite to the businesses to help them complete the assessment.

Businesses that have completed the assessment were invited to this event to receive a certificate and a window decal to display at their business to identify them as having completed the assessment. They are:
