SEMS™ Green Business Certification

SEMS™ is the core training component of the Building for the Future"Best Practices" initiative. Professionals

engaged with community development, Section 3 compliance and affordable housing find SEMS™ Green Business Certification to be a valuable support tool for economic inclusion.  A SEMS™ Certified vendor can produce a competency certificate,plan of action to guide the company's transition to sustainable operations, and an internal audit report to verify that sustainable policies and practices are functional and not just self proclamations.  SEMS™ Certification is based on an award category that recognizes a company's ability to create enduring value by incorporating sustainable principles into day-to-day operations.

New challenges require new services. Our award-winning Sustainability and Economic Inclusion certificate and training programs offer a variety of best practices and unique solutions. Whether you're  a business consultant, coach or in the field of training others, our Partner Program is a win-win situation. The program supports a career framework for teaching innovative best practices to organizations and municipalities in need of strategies and tools to achieve economic inclusion success.

The proprietary Building Blocks model is the "backbone" of a comprehensive new paradigm to get community leaders to rethink economic inclusion and diversity from a holistic perspective. The model consists of eight interrelated building blocks that serve as the umbrella to expand economic opportunity, increase social equity and advance sustainability.

The Partners Program is for a select group of carefully chosen individuals who operate their business with a passion for teaching and sharing knowledge. ACF’s high standards for granting Partner status and our ongoing development of training curriculum ensures quality delivery of proprietary programs like Building For The Future, Building Blocks for Economic Inclusion, Disaster Recovery and the SEMS™ model for Sustainability Education and Green Business Certification.
