Fredericton Green Shops is a voluntary program under the umbrella of the Green Matters greenhouse gas reduction campaign. While Green Shops is directly focused on the business community, the program also links the consumers who frequent the shops and the suppliers who provide products and services to the businesses. The ultimate goal of the program is to reduce Fredericton’s environmental impact through supporting, promoting and rewarding environmental stewardship within the business community.
Participating businesses are encouraged to implement actionable items which simultaneously reduce their environmental impact, reduce their operating costs, and advance Fredericton’s movement towards being a more sustainable community. The implemented items will produce credits for the business, which will certify them as a bronze, silver or gold Green Shop.
The program has been designed to provide support and guidance yet remain flexible enough to be applicable to all commercial sectors in Fredericton, and through the program’s resources, each participating business will develop its own unique trajectory of environmental commitment. We encourage all Fredericton area businesses to join the program and help reduce Fredericton’s environmental impact.
As consumers, individuals can play a significant role in the Green Shops program. We encourage everyone to support Green Shop member organizations and to share ideas, suggestions, and concerns with the Green Shops coordinator.
