ATC recognized by Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council
American Transmission Co. received recognition as a Green Master organization by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council Green Masters program. This is the first time ATC has been recognized as a Green Master – a designation given to the top 20 percent of Wisconsin companies that apply.
The Green Masters Program identifies nine key areas that define business sustainability: energy, carbon, water, waste management, transportation, supply chain, education and outreach, workforce and governance. Participants must apply each year and are scored on how well they perform in each category.
The program encourages continuous improvement by offering three levels of achievement: Green Apprentice, Green Professional and Green Master. ATC’s Green Professional status has improved each year as we identify actions to take toward greater sustainability. ATC was named a Green Professional organization from 2016-2018.
For example, this year our score improved significantly in the workforce category with the expansion of our employee wellness program to encourage sustainable life practices in health, money management and environmental stewardship.
We continue to score well in education and outreach with our volunteer efforts to educate high school and middle school students about our industry, as well as our Grow Smart and pollinator planting programs, and relationships with environmentally friendly organizations such as Riveredge Nature Center.
We are proud of the Green Professional achievement and continue to look for areas of improvement to support our environmental commitment.
