ClimeCo’s Advisory Service for The Blue Standard by Oceanic Global

by: Tori Rocha-Baker | November 1, 2023

ClimeCo is excited to announce our advisory service that helps clients obtain Blue Standard Verification. The Blue Standard by Oceanic Global is awarded to organizations that eliminate single-use plastics and implement “Blue Actions,” defined by Oceanic Global as suggested best practices for comprehensive sustainable operations. The standard’s 3-star verification system encourages businesses, including venues, restaurants, hotels, events, office spaces, and tours, to make continuous commitments to sustainability while celebrating incremental achievements. The level of stars a recipient is awarded reflects their corresponding level of achievement in accordance with the standard’s criteria. 

ClimeCo is a trained and independent Blue Standard Consultant approved by Oceanic Global to provide Blue Standard implementation advisory services. In 2023, we proudly advised the Atlanta Green Market, an event filled with environmentally focused sustainable brands, to be awarded the 2-Star Seal of Oceanic Global’s Blue Standard Verification. This achievement verifies their efforts to reduce the event’s single-use plastics and implement sustainable actions, such as waste management compliance, locally sourced food, promotion of responsible travel/commute, procurement of carbon offsets, and more. 

To learn more about becoming verified with the Blue Standard, email Leticia Socal at lsocal@climeco.com or contact us here.
