Do You Support Sustainable Business Practices?

by Sean Donovan


The Pledge was developed to help businesses learn how to reduce waste, energy and water usage and to develop sustainable purchasing programs. With the launch of this program, the goal of the Tempe Chamber of Commerce is to help make businesses and the communities in which they operate more resilient and sustainable.

This comprehensive online resource and planning tool helps large and small businesses reduce their footprint. It is also a meaningful way to get additional exposure for your organization through online education, telling your story, and appearing in the Pledge Member directory. Sign up for free at

Simply click on the “Take the Pledge” button and select the actions your company is planning to take to reduce its environmental impact. Pledge members will be added to the online Pledge Directory and will be recognized throughout the year at events, newsletters and social media campaigns.

Explore tips and resources in the “What You Can Do” section for a lot of great ideas. Many are easy to implement and won’t cost you a dime. Others may require some investment, but are designed to save you money in the long run. Never underestimate the value of being able to demonstrate to your clients that you’re a sustainable company.

Early supporters include the City of Tempe, Waste Management, Special Moments, House of Tricks, Printing Specialists, Architekton, Bryan University, Acceler8 and Dynamic Worldwide Training Consultants.
