About Green Business On The Hill

The Chestnut Hill Business Association (CHBA) is making an unprecedented commitment to advancing sustainability with the launch of its first-ever green business certification program.

Green Business On The Hill is a new initiative which recognizes merchants who take meaningful steps towards incorporating sustainability in their operations.  The program requires participating CHBA members to report the practices they have in place and encourages them to adopt new practices that further reduce their impact on the planet.  After completing a rigorous 104-point evaluation process, businesses are measured against a benchmark for certification and then awarded one, two, or three leaves depending on the extent of their achievements, with opportunities for recertification and improvement on an annual basis.

By showcasing their commitment to environmentally-sensitive business-practices, Green Business on the Hill also makes it easier for eco-conscious consumers to learn about small businesses in Chestnut Hill who share their values.  Please view the list of our participating businesses below and support those who have earned certification under the program!
