Green Business Partnership Receives $25,000 Grant from Con Edison

The Green Business Partnership (GBP), a membership organization that helps businesses become sustainable and achieve green certification, has received a $25,000 grant from Con Edison. The funds will be used to expand membership in the GBP, to provide technical assistance and coaching to member organizations so they may achieve green certification, and to update the online dashboard businesses use to walk them through the certification process.

“Sustainability is always a team effort, and we’re so grateful to have Westchester’s primary energy provider as a longtime supporter of the partnership and our efforts to help the business community go green,” Dani Glaser, Program Director of the Green Business Partnership.

Any for- or non-profit organization that leases or owns commercial or industrial space can join the Green Business Partnership and use its online toolkit and propriety greenhouse gas emissions tool to earn an official green certification and track and reduce emissions. More than 150 businesses and nonprofits are members, and 59 have achieved certification since the GBP launched its official accreditation in 2014. These organizations use their certification to save money, increase competitiveness, and recruit and engage employees.

“Con Edison welcomes the opportunity to assist the Green Business Partnership and to work together towards attaining our clean energy future,” said Jane Solnick, Con Edison Director of Westchester Regional and Community Affairs. “Sustainability is anchored upon the economy and society as well as the environment, and in today’s world it means more than ever.” – Green Business Partnership
