Joining Our Organization | What We Do

AzBAS is your central point for all things sustainable. With the hundreds of organizations relating to sustainability metrics, standards and programs, it is near impossible for most companies to be involved with each. However, every organization can provide unique input, information and even dictate the future of standards and regulations. AzBAS solves this problem by bringing each of these organizations to a focal point, in a single organization. This will allow you and your company to save money, time and focus on implementing your internal sustainability initiatives.


AzBAS membership is open to all private and public businesses, governments and organizations located in or doing business within in Arizona. Member organizations have a common goal of advancing sustainability through education, leadership and collaboration. Members are expected to represent a liaison to another sustainability related organization. Members are actively involved and provide input regarding their specific sector, with the goal being that members bring value to the organization as well as receive value. AzBAS membership includes a broad range of industry sectors, governmental and NGO individuals; each representing various standards boards, certification schemes, metric evaluation programs and more. Entities not eligible for membership can participate as affiliates.

AZBAS Updates

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well! I have a few updates for you all:

The first one is extremely sad. Teresa Clark, an active member of AzBAS, who has severed in various board rolls including President and Vice President, for many years lost her battle to cancer on 16 Dec 2020. I personally consider her a friend, and can speak for everyone both in AzBAS and in the community that we are going to miss her energy, enthusiasm, work ethic and significant contributions to AzBAS and sustainability as a whole.

Secondly, due to COVID-19 and the various situations that surround the pandemic that has been ongoing for over a year, we will postpone any activity-both face-to-face and virtual, between today and 31 December 2021. We understand that this has been a busy, difficult and trying time for many of our members and want to ensure no one has to miss out on any opportunities due to the current state. The website will remain active and those interested may reach out for any reason. All dues will be postponed until further notice, pending a re-assessment in January 2022.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments please reach out to me at my personal email as the AzBAS email will not be monitored during this time.

Respectfully yours,
