Illinois Green Business Association
The IGBA is a non-profit organization formed to help Illinois businesses realize economic and environmental benefits of green business practices through their operations and employee practices. We accomplish our mission by providing a certification program to recognize current green businesses, encourage other businesses to adopt green practices, and educate communities and consumers. Our three main services are green business certification, personalized business services, and education. We seek to provide exemplary business services to program participants by helping a business identify green management practices that would be most beneficial, assist with grant preparation, and provide record retention. IGBA holds regular general educational programming centered on various topics of sustainability, ranging from the latest green technologies and applying green practices in everyday life. We envision all businesses as capable of adopting more green practices and aim to transform businesses to help grow a greener economy that is prepared for a sustainable future.
