  • The GBRP application lists various actions that businesses can take to work towards and achieve sustainability. This application is used for the many diverse types of businesses in Edina.  Some categories/actions either may not be applicable or your business may not have control to implement depending if you are a property owner, management company, or tenant. Tenants, property managers or owners are invited to apply.  

    Scores will be tabulated based on the percentage of actions a business has taken compared to the total possible actions that apply for the business, so please continue to the end even if you feel you are unable to implement many of the actions listed.  Businesses can earn either Bronze, Silver, or Gold recognition.

    This application should take roughly 20-30 minutes to complete.

    Complete the application by checking ONE of the three boxes that correspond to the action that you are currently doing as follows: 

    YES, that action has been taken or policy already in place; 

    NO, that action has not yet been taken; or 

    N/A, that action does not apply to my business

    Complete the application and submit online OR print out/send to:
