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.
