Preparing Your Business For the Future

We can help your business grow environmental sustainability initiatives

Local First Arizona works to make sure independent businesses prepare for the future. As we think through the challenges the business community will face in the coming years, climate change will likely affect them in many ways, including increased energy costs, disruption due to extreme weather events and possible water restrictions in our desert state. We aim to give local businesses the tools and resources they need to prepare themselves and adapt.

We see firsthand that locally owned business are leading the charge in environmental sustainability across the state. By shining the spotlight on these businesses that are paying attention to environmental best practices, we grow the green movement in the state and provide a way for citizens to recognize and support them. Your business can join us in transforming Arizona’s image to a state that embraces environmental sustainability and is making strides to conserve resources.
