How to Participate

To participate in Good For Michigan, businesses and nonprofit organizations complete the SDG Baseline, a free online tool that is designed to help business set and achieve measurable, positive goals in comprehensive sustainability. It includes a series of questions and can take 30-60 minutes to complete. Each participant will receive a report that outlines where they excel as well as areas for growth. In order to maintain Good For Michigan status, the company or organization must retake the assessment every two years.
