How to Identify Ecofriendly Businesses

The Green Adopter Score indicates how likely a business is green—engaging in environmentally friendly practices.

We’ve found business location is the strongest predictor of whether they will adopt sustainability measures. The greenest industries are engineering and architecture, management and consulting, education, and government. The least green are motor freight and warehousing, non-durable whole sale trade, and beauty shops.

Additionally, larger sites with more employees tend to be greener as well as headquarters and subsidiary locations, according to our database findings.
