A Better City Scorecard Guides Boston Businesses Toward Greater Sustainability

Boston nonprofit A Better City is currently enrolling new participants in its Challenge for Sustainability program. The program challenges and recognizes businesses, institutions and building owners to meet a broad range of sustainability standards and practices, including increasing energy efficiency, reducing resource consumption, decreasing solid waste, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition to technical assistance, mentoring and sharing best practices, the program provides companies with a scorecard for setting and tracking company-wide goals. (The scorecard is the subject of the video below). The Challenge for Sustainability program also offers a downloadable sustainability toolkit free to any interested individuals or organizations.
