Help small businesses
make big carbon reductions.
How do Host Partnerships work?
Join our current host partners and make it more feasible for your local small and medium-sized businesses, tenants, clients, and suppliers to participate in our award-winning Climate Smart training and certification. When you enable a business to reduce its carbon footprint, you also empower it to lead others. And that’s a win-win.Learn More
Host partners make carbon reduction possible.
Incentivize businesses to participate in Climate Smart training
Offer a numerical discount ($1000!), a percentage in savings (50% off), free info sessions, or if you’re feeling generous, be like YVR Airport and cover the entire cost.
Get in tight with the businesses in your community
Sponsor a business and say (without saying) loud and clear: “We support your commitment to carbon emissions reduction fully.” Building loyalty and curbing energy use is gonna be a breeze.
Inform future decisions with data
Receive GHG emissions data on the businesses you support, and use these metrics to accelerate carbon reduction and stimulate investment in cleaning your local economy.
Create green jobs
Create advocacy and leadership within the walls of the businesses that you support. Climate Smart certified businesses are the building blocks of the low-carbon economy.
Minimize your own carbon exposure
by engaging contractors and other members of your supply chain, two great things happen: 1) They green their operations, and 2) You reduce your indirect greenhouse gas emissions.
Build capacity in your own organization.
Train your own in-house staff, then have them co-lead the Climate Smart training program to the very businesses that your organization is supporting. We love full circles.
