Green Masters

Green Masters

Green Master designation for 4th consecutive year

In 2017, MGE earned the Green Masters designation for the fourth consecutive year from the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council. 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. Nearly 200 Wisconsin businesses currently participate in the program.

MGE was the first utility in Wisconsin to be recognized as a Green Master in 2014.

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 voluntary 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.
