In total, two new organizations in North Carolina have earned Green Plus Certification, and six organizations from three different states have earned Re-Certification.
“It’s inspiring to see our new Certified businesses taking the initiative in their industries and communities by becoming Green Plus Certified, and we’re proud to have them join the ranks of those enterprises who have now earned Re-Certification,” said Chris Carmody, Executive Director of the Institute for Sustainable Development. “All of these organizations are leaders in sustainability, and are making smart business decisions that strengthen their local economy, environment, and community,” Carmody concluded.

On top of earning Green Plus Certification, Harrington Bank also earns the distinction of being the first Certified bank in the country, while Stay Online is the first Certified organization in the community of Creedmoor, NC.
