NERC coordinated the Vermont Green Business Program (VT GBP)—a recognition program for businesses that conduct their operations in an environmentally-friendly (green) manner. The no-cost, voluntary program includes the business sectors of hotels, restaurants, marinas, golf courses, and groceries in the Green Mountain State.
NERC's work for the Program included: revising and upgrading the Program criteria, identifying potential business members, conducting walk-through assessments of interested businesses, providing feedback to businesses on how to incorporate green practices into their business operations, assisting businesses with achieving the Program requirements, creating a network for the member businesses, promoting the program via social media and traditional news sources, and partnering with other statewide business programs to distribute the VT GBP marketing materials.
Partners: Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund, and the Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility.
