“Cleaner and Greener Certification”
"Cleaner and Greener Certification"
The Cleaner and Greener Certification program promotes the reporting and offsetting of emissions by companies, organizations, buildings, events and transportation fleets.
The base level certification is given to companies who report emissions in general. Higher tiers are given to companies who show a commitment to offsetting their emissions. Bronze, Silver and Gold certification are achieved based on the percent of greenhouse gas emissions that are offset. Platinum certification is earned by offsetting 100% of greenhouse gas emissions as well as emissions that affect human health.
The Cleaner and Greener certificate program is managed by Leonardo Academy, a nonprofit dedicated to helping organizations and corporations quantify their current environmental impacts and develop sustainability practices to enhance their environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic prosperity.
