Cape and Islands Green

Horsley Witten was one of the first Cape businesses to complete a Level I Verification for the Cape and Islands Green (CIG).  “CIGoGreen” is an environmental initiative organized by a collective of environmentally-conscious business owners, with support from the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, and the following local Chambers:  Hyannis, Falmouth, and Sandwich.  The mission of this initiative is to educate and encourage local businesses to engage in more environmentally sensitive practices to lessen our collective impact on the natural environment while creating a healthier workplace and reducing costs.

The program consists of a three level certification process, incentivized by receiving recognition for meeting specific criteria.  Benefits include cost-savings from reducing energy usage, leadership in the green business industry, and ensuring the health and beauty of Cape and Islands communities.

Horsley Witten President, Scott Horsley, comments, “Our firm realizes that environmental solutions start with individual choices.  Horsley Witten is always striving to reduce our environmental footprint.  This certification process has offered us another opportunity to recommit ourselves to this corporate goal.”
