Eligible participants in the New York Green Business program would receive a New York Green designation that could be used in marketing and advertising campaigns.

To qualify, companies must have a good record of complying with environmental laws and regulations, commit to lowering their carbon footprint and empower employees and customers to support sustainability initiatives.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 15.
