In 2019, SEDAC began a project to increase data quality and streamline the process of collecting and tracking business environmental data, funded by the National Environmental Information Exchange Network Grant Program.
Green business programs across the U.S. are collecting and tracking business environmental data, but there are major opportunities to modernize data collection metrics and increase the quality of data collected, analyzed, and shared. SEDAC, in partnership with the Illinois Green Business Association and the California Green Business Network, will work to expand existing data collection, analysis, and sharing capabilities.
Want to become a certified green business?
We have launched a pilot program and are recruiting businesses and organizations (public sector, NPOs, etc.) to help us test new online data collection tools and help businesses integrate green practices through the Illinois Green Business Certification Program.
As part of the green business certification process, SEDAC can help you measure your impact on the environment and take steps to reduce that impact. Contact us to find out how your business can participate.
