This five year-old organization has rapidly emerged as a national leader in facilitating green business practices, leading businesses to significant savings while attracting new customers, increasing customer loyalty, and attracting and retaining the best employees.
At the Illinois Green Business Association (IGBA), we are committed to improving sustainable practices in Illinois businesses through education and engagement. We envision that a sustainable business culture can be the standard practice of economic activity.
IGBA has three main programs: green business certification, efficient equipment assessments and installations, and education -- including the Illinois Green Business Summit.
This year, we are proud to have worked with over 80 Illinois companies to certify more than one million square feet of space, impacting over 1,400 employees in seven communities throughout Illinois and be ranked the #2 most-trustworthy green certification in the nation by GreenBiz.com.
