Sustainable Springfield, Inc. is now accepting applications for the Springfield Area Green Leadership Program. This program recognizes area businesses, institutions and organizations that are working to integrate environmentally sustainable practices throughout their facilities, operations, culture and products.
The goal of the Green Leadership Program is to promote a wide range of sustainable practices, including waste reduction, energy efficiency, water conservation, renewable energy and green purchasing. These practices not only benefit the environment, but are also good for the bottom line.
The Green Leadership Program offers three levels of participation: BRONZE, SILVER and GOLD. Your business, organization or institution may enroll at any recognition level – each with its own prescribed environmental sustainability requirements. You may remain at that level or apply for higher recognition at any time.
The program is open to all types of businesses, institutions or organizations, including manufacturing, retail and office businesses; services industries; health care facilities; educational institutions; local and state governments; congregations and non-profit organizations. There is no cost to join and participation is simple.
Consider becoming a Green Leadership member if you want to:
- Be recognized for outstanding leadership in the community
- Save money and improve efficiency
- Profit from reduced waste disposal costs
- Enhance your image with customers and employees
