Green Consulting is Getting Red Hot

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) June 20, 2011 - In recent days, we have seen numerous rivers flood above the levies while communities sandbag like crazy to keep the water out of their homes and businesses.  If the flood persists or gets worse, we know that there is only so much that can be done before the levies burst and flood through the community.  Well, there is a flood of regulation, mandates and industry requirements coming to every community in this country.  And, you can’t just bail water and hope that it will go away. 

The environmental issues are building.  The sheer population issues seem like the rise torrent of an impending flood.  The increased demand for resources mean that we can’t bail for long, and other environmental problem are like chunks of ice that hammer at our way of life.  What is coming to each and every community is going to be devastating.

For example, the EPA has recently closed several coal-fired electric plants.  This pulls much needed resources off the grid, and of course, replacing such facilities with nuclear or other energy is a languishing question.  As land fills reach their limits, oil prices blow by $100 per barrel, and worries that water will be the next environmental crisis; can we ignore this flood of ugly truth?

The U.S. Census Bureau reports more than 27 million businesses in the United States.  Does anyone want to venture a guess as to how many of these businesses are doing little more than hollow greenwashing?  While many companies try to convince their customers that they are Green, less than 5% of the businesses in any community are certifiably Green according to a credible national standard.

Going Green is not like slapping on another coat of paint over the weekend.  There is a growing demand for competent Green consultants and auditors who have the ability to help businesses in every community Go Green.  For those with an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to help their community successfully transition to a sustainable version of its former self, training as a Certified Green Consultant is a career with a future.

Classes for Certified Green Consultants will be held in Miami, FL on July 7-9, 2010.  The next class will be in New York City on August 11-13, 2011.  Quality people from across the United State, Canada, and various countries will be in attendance.  With growing successes in North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, and Europe; the Green Business League presents the best opportunity for the aspiring Green consultant.

More information can be found at, and these classes tend to fill up quickly.  By reserving a seat in these classes, any serious-minded person can get ahead of a very important business trend.  In the next five years, every business will need to go Green or watch their business decline.  Every community needs to install a Green program but frankly do not have a successful model to follow.

The Green Business League has introduced The Green Path that represents the more innovative and effective Green business and community program to date.  As a Certified Green Consultant, the student not only gets a powerful education, they also get a smart marketing tool that will serve the entire community as little or no cost.  Frankly, Green Consulting is Getting Red Hot, and this may be the business of the future for those unafraid to “Be the change that they want to see in the world.”  Ghandi
