Third consecutive year: MGE named Green Master
For the third consecutive year, MGE has attained the highest level of the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council's Green Masters Program. This statewide sustainability program evaluates participating companies on their sustainable actions in nine areas. Based on this evaluation, companies are placed in one of three categories. The top 20% of the companies achieve the highest-ranking category—the Green Master distinction.
MGE was the first utility in Wisconsin to be recognized as a Green Master.
Achieving Green Masters status
The Green Masters Program is an objective, points-based recognition program that enables Wisconsin companies to join like-minded businesses that are committed to sustainability. The program recognizes sustainability leaders and encourages continuous improvement.
Companies submit information on the steps they have taken to use less energy, cut waste and become generally more sustainable in their operations and supply chain. Based on their performance in these areas, companies are then placed in one of three program categories with Green Master being the highest level.
Participating in the Green Masters Program is important to MGE. Green Masters:
- Identifies how MGE compares to other high-performing companies in the state.
- Suggests areas for improvement. This provides direction for sustainability goal-setting.
- Encourages continuous improvement. Continuing to participate in Green Masters requires an ongoing commitment to improving our environmental performance.
