Formecology, LLC Attains Green Professional Status for their 8th Consecutive Year[Evansville, Wis. (October, 2021)] – The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council has named Formecology, LLC a Green Professional within its Green Masters Program for their 8th consecutive year. 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 in the program receive recognition for their sustainability accomplishments and develop ideas to plan future sustainability actions.
“This program helps us to think holistically about our company’s environmental impacts. We can celebrate what we have accomplished, better understand where we have room to improve, and help plan for a more sustainable future,” said John Gishnock III.
Formecology, LLC’s sustainability progress includes several actions, such as purchasing renewable energy credits and focusing on energy efficiency in their facilities and equipment. The company also manages a large native prairie planting at the Formecology facility to enhance habitat diversity and utilizes a large rain garden to capture rooftop rainwater and infiltrate it onsite. They’ve also incorporated low-maintenance lawn grass into their landscape to reduce mowing, while constructing hardscape features with recycled concrete. Along with all of this onsite activity, Formecology, LLC also works closely with clients to enhance sustainability of their landscapes.
“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.
