Green Masters Sustainability Champion of the Month
Each month, the Green Masters Program will highlight a company chosen from the previous month’s applications. We look forward to featuring some of the great accomplishments and great people at organizations throughout the state who are doing so much to advance sustainability in Wisconsin.
This month, we will be featuring Evolution Marketing:
Evolution Marketing is an Oconomowoc, Wisconsin based company specializing in the area of environmental communication, eco-friendly marketing and sustainable strategies. Evolution Marketing has been a participant in the Green Masters Program since 2009 and in June of 2012 the company purchased an alternative fuel vehicle for their company fleet – an electric Nissan Leaf. Evolution Marketing calculated a yearly cost savings of more than $700 by switching to an electric vehicle. In fact, before switching to electric, Evolution Marketing’s fuel cost was approximately 14 cents per mile. Since the switch, fuel costs are less than 2.5 cents per mile.

The Green Masters Program is an objective, points-based recognition program that enables Wisconsin institutions of all sizes and from any sector to join a group of like- minded companies that are “on the road to sustainability.” Developed by the WI Sustainable Business Council, in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin, the Green Masters Program helps to recognize Wisconsin’s sustainability leaders and encourage continuous improvement.
Version 3.0 of the Green Masters application was released in January 2013. Improvements include:
- Ability to see where your company ranks within a given sector and sector specific relative performance in each of the nine sustainability areas
- Enhanced metrics reflecting the growing role of business in society, including new actions in governance, workforce and community relations
- Improvements in the ability of small businesses to score highly in the program
Please take a moment to view the broad cross-section of businesses enrolled in the Green Masters Program. These businesses are all leaders, not only within their sectors, but also within the State. From small service-oriented businesses to large manufacturers, the Green Masters Program recognizes leading businesses in the sustainability area from around the state. Furthermore, all Green Masters participants are ready and willing to help you find a better path towards sustainability.
