Be recognized for your environmental achievements!

SEDAC is recruiting businesses of all sizes and organizations (public sector, NPOs, etc.) to participate in the Illinois Green Business Certification Program. Becoming a green business is easy – there are three key steps to being certified: Assess performance, implement your custom action plan and confirm progress. Businesses who participate in the program reduce operating costs, attract new customers, reduce environmental impact, engage employees and are able to promote themselves as an environmental leader in their community.

As part of the green business certification process, SEDAC will help participants measure their impact on the environment and take steps to reduce that impact, providing support to help organizations reach program recognition. If you’re interested in participating, contact us. We look forward to supporting you in your sustainability journey!

Environmental data collection and tracking

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, is working to expand existing data collection, analysis, and sharing capabilities.
