The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council has once again named Anguil Environmental Systems, Inc. as a Green Professional within its Green Masters Program.
Recognizing sustainable actions by businesses from across the state of Wisconsin, the Green Masters program works to identify companies that have taken actions within nine sustainability pillars. Participants receive recognition for their sustainability accomplishments and use the program to develop ideas to plan future sustainability actions.
For the seventh year in a row, Anguil has been recognized as a Wisconsin Green Masters Program Participant and has been acknowledged as a Green Professional within our industry. The Green Master Program provides a third-party, objective set of criteria for defining sustainability initiatives and legitimizes our work to push sustainability into our supply chain. Anguil is continually evaluated and accepted based on our involvement in key areas of sustainability and improvements in employee engagement, community involvement, and environmental performance.
While the past year has looked a little different as a large portion of our employees have continued to work remotely through the pandemic, Anguil has continued to make strides in our sustainability efforts. A major project completed this fall included the planting of 23 mature native trees, including oak, arbor vitae, maple, london planes, and Ohio buckeye trees, along the Anguil corporate headquarters in Milwaukee. These trees were specifically chosen and planted due to their high carbon sequestration.
On Anguil’s sustainability goals, the executive team believes, “It is important to us that every employee knows what we stand for, our values, and future goals. This takes some work, practice, repetition, and belief. In the end, it revolves around communication from every level of our organization. With this, we believe we can create a more sustainable company, saving time, money, resources, which then opens the doors for opportunity and growth.”
The Green Masters Program is an objective, point-based recognition, assessment, and certification program that enables Wisconsin businesses from any size or sector to measure and improve their sustainability strategy. The program has three levels of participation: Green Apprentice, Green Professional, and Green Master. Anguil has achieved Green Professional status. Each year the top 20 percent of the program’s companies are recognized as Green Master companies at the annual WSBC Conference, held in December.
“The Green Masters Program is a tool for businesses to assess and grow their sustainability actions, to benchmark against others in their industry, and to receive a third party credential recognizing their sustainability achievements,” says WSBC’s managing director, Jessy Servi Ortiz.
