Last Tuesday, Gov. Cuomo announced the launch of the New York Green Business program “to formally recognize New York businesses operating sustainably and celebrate businesses that are implementing projects that go above and beyond relevant State laws and regulations to preserve and enhance New York’s environment.”

Gov. Cuomo said:

“New York leads the nation in furthering environmental protections and supporting renewable energy, and we know that businesses and communities benefit from working together to build a cleaner, greener New York.  The New York Green Business Program will encourage other businesses to pursue sustainable practices, attract new customers and foster sustainable innovation that will benefit everyone.”

The program is accepting applications for membership through December 15, 2017. More information on the program is available here.
