The Institute for Green Business Certification began as a U.S. based accrediting body established in 2006. It is considered the world’s first institution to develop a certification program that verifies and accredits businesses in sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices. Its reputation quickly grew and extended internationally with branches in Canada and the Middle East, with a mission of promoting green business practices in both established as well as developing markets. Through certification of green businesses, IGBC provides companies wishing to capitalize on the growing public interest in green practices, with a way of promoting their own green efforts and demonstrating their concern for the well-being of our planet. IGBC’s mission is to promote and increase public awareness in environmentally sound business practices by recognizing those companies who are leading the way with “green” business models and setting the example for a greener Canadian community. IGBC’s vision is to become the universal standard for green business certification.
