The Department of Environmental Conservation has launched the New York Green Business (NYGB) program, which provides recognition and benefits to businesses and other entities that have a strong commitment to operating sustainably.
Businesses that participate must have a good record of compliance, make future sustainability commitments, and communicate their sustainability commitment to their customers and employees.
Applications for the program are being accepted through Friday, December 15th. Applications and more information can be found on DEC's website.
Spread the word to businesses with a strong commitment to sustainability so they get the recognition they deserve!
NYGB will make it easy for consumers to know that the businesses they are patronizing are committed to protecting and conserving our shared environment. We will have our inaugural group of NYGB members in place next year. Then, just look for the logo!
