Salmon-Safe’s developer accreditation is the nation’s first independent accreditation program to recognize developer excellence in water quality protection at a firm-wide level.
Salmon-Safe accreditation recognizes environmentally innovative developers who commit to implementing Salmon-Safe principles around onsite stormwater treatment and other core standards where feasible, even if not all of the sites they are constructing will necessarily be eligible for Salmon-Safe certification.
Salmon-Safe’s rigorous accreditation process provides validation of environmental performance and public credibility for accredited developers.
Once a completed application has been received, Salmon-Safe and its independent experts will conduct a review of the candidate firm's policies and procedures related to water quality protection and urban ecology as well as site inspections at active projects.
Accreditation is for a 3-year period with annual review. Accreditation entitles the developer to display the Salmon-Safe logo and messaging at its construction sites and in other promotion and include its Salmon-Safe accreditation credentials in bids.
