Green Business Recognition Program

A Green Business Assessment campaign has been initiated by the Upper Township Business Association (UTBA), in conjunction with the Upper Township Green Team. The campaign consists of a check-list for business self-assessment of internal "green" practices. The Township filed for certification in June 2014 and, after participating in the review process, has been Certified at the Bronze level with Sustainable Jersey.

The self-assessment checklist covers areas of recycling, waste-reduction, energy conservation, water conservation, purchasing local and purchasing recycled.  In addition to providing recognition for UTBA members that operate their businesses with "green" best practices,  the program will heighten awareness of the general guidelines that lead to a more sustainable community. The UTBA encourages members to complete the 75 item questionnaire and submit their self-assessment. Completed assessments can be dropped off with the UTBA Secretary, Liz Fogio, at Foglio's Flooring Center, 344 S. Shore Rd., Marmora or emailed via This email address is being protected from spambots.
