Green America Business Seal of Approval
The Green America Business Network screens and certifies socially-responsible companies. Qualifying companies are listed in the National Green Pages™. To qualify, companies must 1) demonstrate familiarity with and commitment to social and environmental responsibility, and 2) significant action in terms of this commitment. Co-op America’s research team seeks independent data to verify company information. More specifically, companies must demonstrate that they:
- Focus on using business as a tool for positive social change.
- Are "values-driven," as well as profit-driven (sometimes known as the ‘triple-bottom-line’).
- Are socially and environmentally responsible in the way they source, manufacture, and market their products and run their offices and factories.
- Are committed to and employ extraordinary and innovative practices that benefit: 1) workers, 2) communities, 3) customers, and 4) the environment.
