A Greener Morton is a program dedicated to helping Morton businesses, large and small, apply sustainability practices that lead to financial savings and a stronger customer base. The program is free and locally developed and operated by the Morton Economic Development Council. Every business is encouraged to register, take our simple assessment, and begin applying the basic practices that will help you save money, improve our environment, and attract new customers that care about your company’s commitment to sustainable practices. Create your account today and get started!
If your business would like to save some green by going green, this is a simple and local way to get started. The program was developed with both large and small businesses in mind, which means you won’t find fancy terms that don’t make sense or big budget projects that small businesses can’t afford. Unlike LEED Certification, A Greener Morton is focused on sustainability practices within an existing building….not the construction of a new one. Sign up and take our assessment. You might learn a few things you can do immediately to begin your green journey!
