Sustainability is good business

Through our Sustainable Business Certification, we recognize organizations that are doing the most for the community, their employees and the environment.

Anyone can view or take the online self-assessment to discover what they’re already doing and what more they might do. Businesses that qualify may be certified at one of 4 levels of performance*:

Conservationist: Reduces negative impacts by conserving resources like energy and water; provides a safety net for employees.

Innovator: Creates positive impacts like generating some of their own electricity and involving employees in decision-making.

Advocate: Encourages other stakeholders to get involved.

Sustainable: Becomes a restorative business, with zero negative impacts; a leader in industry with a highly empowered workforce.

*The certification is increasing from
three levels to four in 2020.
