It is with great pleasure that we recognize GreenProfit
Solutions, Inc., (www.greenprofitsolutions.com)
as the Small Business of the Year for the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of
Commerce. Keith and Joe Winn have built
a strong small company with a focus on balancing business and sustainability.
When Keith and Joe first came to the Chamber and talked to
me about certification programs that were ecologically friendly, I was curious to
know how the Chamber could become more sustainable. They jumped right in and did a thorough audit
of the organization—everything from light fixtures to cups. The goal was that we could make a series of
changes that helped us “go green.”
The end result is that we have gained our certification
status which reflects our corporate responsibility to lead the way in becoming
a green business. It’s neither difficult
nor expensive to implement this program.
Now we have a baseline practice and we can move forward improving our
daily compliance. Each year we
re-certify in order to keep the approval rating.
Keith has also stepped up at the Chamber in a number of
other areas. He is now chairing a leads
group and conducts our orientation on a monthly basis. I can’t think of many other companies more
fully engaged at the Chamber and our community than GreenProfit Solutions and
congratulate Keith and Joe on their fine work.
