MARINETTE — The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council has named Winsert Inc. of Marinette 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 businesses that have taken at least one action within each of the nine pillars of ‘sustainability.’ Participants in the program — almost 200 in calendar year 2017 — receive recognition for their sustainability accomplishments and develop ideas for future sustainability actions.

The program is grounded in an in-depth survey where points are rewarded for a variety of actions. These actions are grouped into areas that include energy, climate, water, waste management, transportation, supply chain, workforce, governance, and community and educational outreach. Winsert Inc. has distinguished itself with exceptional scores in workforce, energy, and governance within its industry.

The Green Masters Program is a points-based recognition and assessment program that enables Wisconsin businesses of all sizes and from any sector to join a group of like-minded companies that are on the road to sustainability. The program has established three levels of participation: Green Apprentice, Green Professional, and Green Master. Each year at the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Conference, the top 20 percent of companies that applied during the calendar year are identified and recognized as the Green Masters level companies for the year.

“The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council is delighted to recognize Winsert Inc. as a Green Professional under the Green Masters Program. We would like to recognize Winsert Inc. for an outstanding dedication to integrating principles of sustainability into its operations while pursuing business excellence. In earning this certificate, Winsert, Inc. stands out in Wisconsin’s business community,” said Tom Eggert, Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council’s Executive Director.
