Green Business Program
The Lafayette Green Business Program was established in 2011 to recognize local businesses making steps to positively impact Lafayette's environmental footprint. The committee looks for businesses embracing activities such as energy reduction and carbon offsets, facility upgrades for increased energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling and composting, and encouragement of "green" practices with employees and customers.

An additional goal of the initiative is to encourage other companies to undertake similar activities to make their own businesses more ‘green’. "By honoring those who are working to be more 'green,' we hope to show other businesses that they too can take similar steps and compete for the award next year," said Deborah Morrison, who started the program. "We want to foster a business community which values sustainability."

Any business with a physical location within the city limits of Lafayette can participate, although home-based businesses do not qualify. Business owners are asked to complete an online survey in November of each year to report their sustainable practices. The company that shows the greatest amount of impact across all areas of the survey is selected as the winner, and other businesses with strong showings are awarded the category of runner-up.
