Green Plus is a green and sustainable small business certification and education program that gives employers affordable, practical support in succeeding financially while being good to their environment, employees and community. Green Plus gives chambers of commerce, trade associations, foundations and local governments a new way to support their small business and non-profit stakeholders.

The Institute for Sustainable Development partners with chambers of commerce to offer Green Plus to their members, and licenses the program to philanthropic foundations and local government as a triple bottom line education tool for their grantees and small business constituents.
The Institute is comprised of public and private university partners, chambers of commerce, and philanthropic organizations dedicated to providing smaller employers affordable access to sustainability expertise. In 2008, the Institute’s partners received the national Business Civic Leadership Center’s Siemens Sustainable Community Award for its effort to build a public-private coalition to advance sustainability.
