WHAT IS A GREEN BUSINESS?
Green businesses follow practices that limit their environmental impact and protect their employees. What “green” means is a little different for every business, but no matter how your business works, you can find a way to incorporate sustainable practices. By going green, your business can reduce expenses, improve efficiency, keep employees healthy and engaged, comply with regulations, and do right by the planet.
Green businesses take action to:
Reduce water and energy use
Use non-toxic cleaners
Waste less and recycle right
Support sustainable transportation
Engage their employees and community
