There are many roads to getting the right certification for a specific market. A company can get a general business certification as a green business. A company's products or processes can be certified by a certification agency such as ISO (International Standards Organization).

Here are a couple resources that give detailed ingredients in green business certification.

Green Business Certification in California

The Green Business Standards presented at this websitge define what a business or public agency must achieve to be certified “green.” Businesses in over 20 different industries, including auto repair shops, printers, hotels, restaurants, landscapers, wineries, janitorial and laundry services, grocery and retail stores, home remodelers, attorneys, architects, engineers, gift services, and a variety of office and home-based businesses, have successfully met the standards and are now recognized as Bay Area Green Businesses.


Global Ecolabelling Network

The Global Ecolabelling Network offers "Core Criteria for personal computers" for GEN members' programs. Members are encouraged to consider inclusion of these core criteria in their own program criteria documents and processes.

Based on the basic principles of GEN, the criteria have been selected to be comprehensive more than futuristic, and acceptable to each country's ecolabel in different situations.

Many of these materials and design concepts will apply to other certification programs such as those put together by trade associations that know the specifics of their narrow niche of products, services and processes.
