The programs address several key components of being a green business, energy conservation, water conservation, waste reduction, chemical management, pollution prevention, purchasing practices, social responsibility, education, community involvement and other specialty-specific criteria. The certifications will help to raise the bar for wedding providers.

The new certifications and website are now online. Additional content and new features are expected to be released over the next few months.
Designed to become an industry standard, the program will go beyond basic environmental compliance and will require applicants to undergo a thorough background check to ensure there is no greenwashing involved. Applicants who pass the review process will be granted the honor of becoming a Certified Green Wedding Provider SM and will be able to display a specialty-specific logo prominently on their website and marketing materials.
