Nuts and Bolts Guide

A guide to Green Plus Certification.

This section outlines the survey questions used in our assessment and certification process, and gives you a step-by-step guidance. Follow along as you fill out the survey and if you have any questions, feel free to contact our staff!

The Green Plus How to Guide mirrors the Diagnostic Tool – it is separated into the areas of Performance, Planet, and People, and then further into sub-topics (e.g., Organizational Planning & Documentation, Energy, Community Engagement). Within each sub-topic you will find the following information:

  • A brief description of what the topic is and why it matters
  • A summary of beginner and more advanced steps an organization can take to engage this topic
  • Links to additional resources
  • A glossary of relevant terms
