Sustainability at Work organizations “walk the talk” of green business, from recycling and reducing energy to bike commuting and community giving. The program provides a portal for residents to connect with businesses making positive impacts on our economy, community, and environment.

Sustainability at Work offers three levels of certification to recognize a business’s positive impact on the environment and our community. Certified applicants are evaluated on more than 70 factors related to their environmentally-friendly practices in the areas of recycling/reuse, employee engagement, transportation, energy, water, and community engagement. Gold-certified businesses must meet more than 45 of these items.
