Green Plus is not only a ‘green’ (environmental) program — it is an effort to encourage a balanced commitment to the triple bottom line – People, Performance, and Planet. Through Green Plus, the Institute strives to help smaller enterprises learn across regions from one another as well as from academic experts. Through Green Plus, the Institute also aides business and public sector leaders in understanding how they can help smaller enterprises improve their communities – through education, revisions in regulation, access to capital and other means.
The Institute for sustainable development is looking for examples of cities that have gone above and beyond current best practices – institutions that have not only made their operations sustainable or their environment better, but have actively reached out to a) smaller enterprises and b) other public and non-profit partners to create a community-wide commitment to triple bottom line sustainability.

- Any individual or organization may nominate a town or organization for the award, and an entity may nominate itself.
- There is no fee to be nominated.
- There is no required membership in any organization to be nominated.
