Green Masters Program
01 / ABOUT
You can’t manage what you don’t measure.
The Green Masters Program is a tool to define, prioritize, measure, and manage your company’s sustainability performance in environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics that are meaningful to your organization and your stakeholders.
The all-new virtual platform, has expanded coverage of ESG impacts, and was purpose-built for organizations looking for a scalable standard for improving sustainability performance. What makes the program unique is that it wraps membership around the tool, providing you resources, education, a community of support to meet you where you are in your sustainability journey.
The Green Masters Program allows you to scope your disclosure based on your business priorities and stakeholder concerns. It is ideal for businesses that want to integrate sustainability into their business model and recognize the value of a deliberate approach, formal framework, third-party credentials, and supporting resources.
WHY the Green Masters Program?
The Green Masters Program is a cost-effective way to advance and integrate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) actions across your organization. The Green Masters® Certification Mark indicates that your organization has identified and is effectively managing material sustainability issues.
The methods, key performance indicators, and best practices found in the Green Masters tool are designed to be consistent with widely accepted international frameworks, standards, and certification programs. Participation in the program can serve as a stand-alone credential or a steppingstone to other standards, certifications, and indices.
"The Green Masters Program provides a platform for cross-functional teams to meet, exchange ideas and continue to imbed and drive ESG programming throughout your organization"
- Sr. Manager of Sustainability & Environmental Compliance, Kohl's Inc.

The Green Master Program is a useful tool in guiding our sustainability
efforts and helps us generate ideas for what actions we can take that fit within our business model and goals. The process has allowed us to set an example for our industry and share our lessons learned with Wisconsin Healthcare Professionals and WHPCA so others can benefit too. This is an important way of leveraging our connections and spheres of influence to maximize our ability to impact change. Thanks, WSBC for guiding us!
