The Business Council of Westchester (BCW) now offers Westchester County businesses an alternative green business certification program and online sustainability resources through collaboration with the Green Business Bureau (GBB) (“GBB’s Sustainable Business Certification”). BCW members who were previously certified by the Green Business Partnership receive discounted membership to GBB’s Sustainable Business Certification program and receive credit for accomplishments achieved under the GBP.
