ATC recognized by Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council’s Green Masters Program
For the second consecutive year, American Transmission Co. received recognition as a Green Master organization by the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council Green Masters program. The Green Master designation is given to the top 20% 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 was named a Green Professional organization from 2016-2018, and first achieved the Green Master level in 2019. Our status has improved each year as we identify actions to take toward greater sustainability.
For example, this year our score improved in the governance category as we continue to describe how we are connecting people and businesses with a more sustainable energy future, our high customer satisfaction survey scores , and how we align our business with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We continue to improve the workforce category with an employee wellness program that encourages sustainable life practices in health, money management and environmental stewardship. We also retained high marks in the community and educational outreach category – with our support of pandemic-related relief causes, our Grow Smart® and planting programs, as well as our Trees for Threes partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks.
We are proud of our Green Master achievement and continue to look for ways to further enhance our environmental commitment.
