Great question. The GBB Assessment was designed to help new members quickly review their green achievements and decisions to date. These Yes/No questions are the quickest way for your business to take credit for the sustainable activities and choices already underway or completed.
Each Assessment question is linked to a Green Initiative. If you answer ‘yes’ to a particular Assessment question, the linked Initiative is marked as completed and your business earns the points associated with it. Likewise, if the answer to an Assessment question is left as ‘no’, the related Initiative will remain available to your business.
One final note: while all Assessment questions are linked to Initiatives, not all Initiatives are included as an Assessment question. The Assessment includes questions for a robust list of the most common GBB Initiatives but given the depth of the Initiatives list, we’ve limited it to a subset of the entire Initiatives library.
