Non-profit & Educational Institutions

Green Business Standard

Includes advocacy organizations; summer camps; industry associations; schools

Community Development Credit Unions are included under Banks and Credit Unions, but this standard does include Camps. Green America does not certify religious organizations and professional associations.

Unlike other standards that are prescriptive, this one mainly seeks to ensure that the organization runs a green office and that its policies and mission do not conflict with ours
