You can be the winner of Fls 800 by designing the most innovative and sustainable award for the Curacao Business Council for Sustainable Development (BedrijvenPlatform Milieu -BPM). The award will be for local companies that comply with the BPM’s Minimum Sustainability Standards (MSS)

The MSS consists of 3 levels: Caterpillar – phase 1, Cocoon – phase 2 and Butterfly – phase 3.
In order to achieve each level a minimum amount of points must be gained.

The points are based on the basic sustainability concepts of People, Planet & Profit (PPP). PPP is also known as the Triple Bottom Line (TBL), a framework that consists of three performance dimensions: social, environmental and financial.

BPM members will receive recognition of their achievement which they can proudly display in their business/organization.

Implementing the minimum standards will help all BPM -members gain momentum, respect and recognition and therefore to become true agents of change and sustainability role models for Curaçao and regional businesses.
