Montclair Green Business Recognition Program
Working with the NJDEP and the Township of Montclair, the Institute developed a Green Business Recognition (GBR) program as part of the Township’s recertification for Sustainable Jersey. Montclair’s GBR program helps local businesses identify and implement sustainable practices throughout their operations. By participating in the program, businesses are well aligned to apply to the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry, as well as to other cost reduction and recognition programs. The Institute has helped the town of Montclair recruit students to help register businesses and educate them about the requirements of the GBR program.
Building upon its work with Montclair, the PSEG ISS has also worked with the towns of Verona, Maplewood and Jersey City to recruit students to help them register businesses for their township’s GBR programs. In total, Montclair State students have helped these towns register over 15 businesses, several of which are now part of the New Jersey Sustainable Business Registry.
