Back in September, we were pleased to announce that Salal’s headquarters building in Northgate had received certification from the EnviroStars Green Business program. Now we are proud to announce that EnviroStars has certified all five Salal branches as well. The certifications are part of our ongoing efforts to create a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable future for our communities, while at the same time saving our members money through added efficiency and lowering our operating costs.
The EnviroStars program is led by a regional partnership of cities, counties, and utilities, including the City of Seattle and Seattle City Light. EnviroStars unites green business initiatives from around the Puget Sound region with the common goal of linking businesses to local environmental programs and encouraging companies to become more sustainable. Businesses earn certification by meeting a list of qualifications, including energy and water conservation, pollution prevention, and the reduction of toxic substances, waste, and greenhouse gas emissions.
