MGE Named 2021 Green Master

For the eighth year in a row, our regulated utility subsidiary, Madison Gas and Electric (MGE), has attained the highest level of the Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council's (WSBC) Green Masters Program. The WSBC's statewide sustainability program evaluates participating companies on their sustainable actions in nine primary areas:  energy, climate change, water, waste, transportation, supply chain, community outreach, workforce and governance. Based on this evaluation, companies are placed in one of three categories. The top 20% are awarded the Green Master designation.

MGE is one of 23 companies that met the requirements for Green Master certification in 2021. More than 100 Wisconsin businesses currently participate in the Green Masters Program. MGE was the first utility to be recognized as a Green Master in 2014.
