Event Details

What:  Join us at Peloton Labs for a social evening of Benchmarking - we'll provide snacks, drinks and a fun, social atmosphere for you to complete our benchmarking tool.

Why: Because everything is more fun with friends.  MBS staff will be there to answer questions you may have about the benchmarking tool.  Other  businesses will provide a fun and collegial atmosphere.  Whether you've begin the benchmarking process and just need some support for the final push or whether you're just starting, this will be a fun and productive evening for you.



Introducing the new way to benchmark your sustainable business practices.

Maine Businesses for Sustainability has partnered with Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences to provide Maine businesses with a tool to benchmark sustainability. The tool is designed to help you learn innovative ways to save money, expand your bottom line and grow your business through sustainable business practices. You do not need to be a "green" business to participate and we encourage all businesses to take advantage of this opportunity. The Sustainability Benchmarking tool includes a free membership to Maine Businesses for Sustainability.

With this tool, you will find opportunities for:

cost savings

increasing consumer goodwill

expanding market share, and

gaining important insights into how you can improve operational efficiency while reducing your carbon footprint and strengthening your community base.

We pride ourselves in creating a free and comprehensive tool for you to benchmark your sustainable business practices. Let us help you create a more powerful, resilient and engaging brand.

So what exactly is the tool?

The Sustainability Benchmarking Tool is a questionnaire designed by Maine Businesses for Sustainability in partnership with Manoment Center for Conservation Sciences.


The questions are broken down into categories, including Finances & Governance, Employee Relations, Community Engagement, and Environment. Each question provides you with information on why it is important to a sustainable business. When you have submitted the assessment, it will generate a report that gives you a Sustainability Score and resources (for each question) that will give you the chance to improve your overall sustainability.


Interested in improving your score? Every member who has used the tool can take advantage of consulting services through Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences. A member of their team will go over the questionnaire with you and give you insight into where you can improve your sustainable business practices, creating a sustainability path for performance improvement.


Interested in showing your score off? MBS will craft a unique Sustainability Story based on your individual sustainable business practices. You can use this story in all of your marketing, promotion, employee engagement, and other activities to leverage your participation.


All of our consulting and marketing services allow you to display a unique Scoring Stamp based on your score. 



Significant sustainability practices already in place. Scores higher than 60. Available to members who take advantage of consultation and marketing services.




Shows excellence and leadership in sustainability & has a significant record of sustainable practices. Scores higher than 75. Available to members who take advantage of consultation and marketing services.
