Last year Dsenyo became a Green America approved business for people and planet. So what exactly does this mean?
Green America (formerly Co-op America) is a great non-profit organization based in the USA working to promote sustainability in business both from the social and environmental perspective. They are an excellent resource for information on organic, fair trade and sustainability in general. Sustainability meaning that the "Earth is preserved for all the generations to come."
In order to become an approved business as part of Geen America's Business Network, Dsenyo had to go through a throrough application process and review of our business. We like Green America because they balance both the impact on people and the environment which is right up our alley at Dsenyo.
According to Green America a "Green Business" is on that fits the following principles:
- Green businesses operate in ways that solve, rather than cause, both environmental and social problems.
- These businesses adopt principles, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life for their customers, their employees, communities, and the environment.
You can find a list of Green businesses in Green America’s National Green Pages™ . All of these business, like Dsenyo, have passed a screening process that qualifies them for membership in the Green Business Network™.
