Sustainable Business Program

The mission of the Sustany Sustainable Business Program is to promote sustainability in the City of Tampa by partnering with local businesses to identify and adopt best practices that encourage economic, environmental, and community accountability. The program includes designation from the City of Tampa as a certified Green Business.SBP_FinalLogo

In January of 2014, Sustany, in collaboration with Tampa Downtown Partnership, will launch a newly developed twelve week program aimed at educating downtown merchants on becoming more sustainably focused. 

To guide businesses through the sustainability assessment process, Sustany matches each business with a student sustainability specialist from a local university.  Sustany’s Executive Committee facilitates three workshop meetings and oversees businesses and students to ensure the success of those relationships, expectations and program outcomes.

Businesses will:

  • Increase profitability through efficient resource-use
  • Gain access to potential new customers
  • Attract, engage and retain talent
  • Build goodwill and brand awareness through positive PR
  • Receive technical assistance from sustainability specialists
