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.
The window to apply to for Green Check Certification is open now through the end of the calendar year. Visit lexingtonky.com/GreenCheck for sustainable business resources and to apply for the program.
