Be an Eco-Business
Your business can be a champion for the environment AND find cost savings in business practices. Let us show you how.
The Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade is proud to offer this free program to our members.
What is the Eco-Business program?
A: Quite simply, the board has combined the expertise and knowledge of a number of its qualified members to form an Eco Business Advisory Committee. These volunteers have spent many months researching and creating our Eco-Checklist as a resource for businesses to use as a template to evaluate their role in doing all they can to sustain a cleaner environment.
Take the Eco-Business Challenge!
Simply by taking the challenge and comparing your business practices to the Eco-Checklist, Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade members earn the right to display our Eco-Business ‘Certificate of Commitment’.
Non-members of the Board of Trade interested in participating are encouraged to seek membership.

What is sustainability?
In 1983, the United Nations commissioned Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland to study sustainable development. The study, Our Common Future (The Brundtland Report), published in 1987, contains the best-known definition of sustainability:
Sustainability is meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
