Green Check recognizes businesses and organizations for their green initiatives and helps them expand their sustainability efforts. The free program begins with a personal consultation and completion of the Green Check Sustainability Scorecard. The Sustainability Scorecard caters to organizations across a variety of sectors, including restaurants, non-profit organizations, retail, and manufacturers. Although the certification is valid for three years, member organizations are encouraged to pursue higher tiers through continued participation and achievement.
