How to Identify Green Businesses
The Green Adopter Score shows how likely a business is to engage in environmentally friendly activities such as recycling or have LEED green building certification.
The strongest predictor of this is business location. The greenest industries are engineering and architecture, management and consulting, education, and government. The least likely to be green are motor freight and warehousing, non-durable whole sale trade, and beauty shops.
Additionally, larger sites with more employees tend to be greener as well as headquarters and subsidiary locations, according to our business database.
