DEC's New York Green Business Program

Would you like to support the expansion of green businesses in your community? NY Green Business logo

Governor Cuomo and DEC are pleased to announce the launch of the New York Green Business (NYGB) program. NYGB provides recognition and benefits to businesses that are committed to sustainability and protecting New York’s environment. As one benefit, NYGB members will receive priority access to technical assistance programs, including experts at the New York State Pollution Prevention Institute, to help them carry out sustainability programs.

Local governments can play a role in helping green businesses thrive in their communities through planning, outreach, and incentives. Local governments can even earn points under the Climate Smart Communities Certification program for actions completed under pledge element 8: Support development of a green innovation economy. For more information on how you can promote the New York Green Business program in your community, contact .

NYGB is managed by DEC and is free and voluntary for businesses to participate in. DEC is accepting applications for the program through the close of business on Friday, December 15, 2017. 

DEC is holding a series of webinars to assist businesses in applying to the program. More information can be found on the NYGB website:
