The Legacy Environmental Leadership Program: Company Profiles Page

The Environmental Leadership Program (ELP) was Colorado's longstanding, statewide environmental recognition and reward program that offered benefits and incentives to members that voluntarily go beyond compliance with state and federal regulations and are committed to continual environmental improvement.

This site is a collection of all current ELP Legacy members who are using the next year to adapt to our new criteria and transition into our new program, the Colorado Green Business Network!
Learn more about our members by using the navigation on the left (or left-corner for mobile and tablet users).

From ELP to the Colorado Green Business Network!

Our program has changed! With the merging of the Pollution Prevention Program and the Environmental Leadership Program, we are excited to announce the new and improved Colorado Green Business Network!

The Colorado Green Business Network is the new branded version of the Environmental Leadership program, or ELP - a statewide recognition program with over 23 years of tradition to its name, boating over 150 member businesses per year. The Environmental Leadership program is currently transitioning more completely into it’s new name and program, Colorado Green Business Network, but out of respect for the fantastic work that has been completed to date by our current Environmental Leadership program members, we’re still recognizing our businesses under that program.

Past ELP Members were given the opportunity to continue as an ELP Legacy Member for the next year, until they recertify as an official CGBN Member in 2023. This allows past members to slowly engage with the new criteria and transition into our new and improved program!
