GreenBlue invites these organizations to attend open SPC events and encourages opportunities for open exchanges.

GreenBlue may refuse to renew the membership of any company that it determines, in its sole discretion, has engaged in behavior that harms the SPC or GreenBlue or disrupts the SPC mission.
