I am looking to build a list of "Green friendly companies" I want to first target US based companies and then move to the UK and try and also cover Europe. The bare minimum of information that I will need on each company is the following.
Types of companies that I would be looking for
A company listed must offer services or products with clear environmental
benefits. A product could contributes to environmental sustainability such as saving water, saving energy,
minimizing waste or improving ecological biodiversity.
A large company showing clear environmental leadership over competitors by incorporating
environmental and ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ principles throughout their daily functions.
A retail outlet providing a minimum of 75% environmentally sustainable products eg Walmart using recycled bags and packaging.
All of these companies website should hold certain key words eg green, sustainable, renewable, carbon-free, non-polluting, organic, environment carbon natural ect
This means that possibility a web bot could be written to collect this data from Google carrying out queries eg the search on google
“carbon-free US company fax” lists the “hydrogen engine center” that creates carbon-Free Hydrogen Ammonia (anhydrous) Engine it gives the companies full contact details and address see [url removed, login to view] this is the type of company that I would be trying to find and create a database with . I would like an application to be able to go out and query and collect these results but I am also open to other ways to collect this information such as manual searches.
If you are collecting these contact details by hand please send me the total number you could collect in a week and your cost per record. If it is an application please list the development costs.
If you are manually collecting this data please send me an example of 20 records in the above listed format listing 20 Green companies
Please let me know if you have any questions.
