How to Earn Ribbons:

  • White Ribbons are awarded when organizations complete the first steps in a sustainability focus area.  White Ribbon Actions are often those that “lay the groundwork,” or enable organizations to begin tracking progress in the focus area. To earn a White Ribbon, complete the Foundational White Ribbon Actions in the sustainability focus area of your choice, then earn 10 additional points from Instrumental Actions in the same focus area.
  • Red Ribbons are awarded for mid-level achievements.  Actions designated as Foundational Red Ribbon Actions are typically actions that help build momentum and / or increase performance in a given focus area. To earn a Red Ribbon, complete the Foundational Red Ribbon Actions in the sustainability focus area of your choice, then earn 20 additional points from the Instrumental Actions in the same focus area.
  • Blue Ribbons are awarded for advanced achievements in each focus area. Similar to others, earning a Blue Ribbon entails completing the Foundational Blue Ribbon Actions, and 30 points from Instrumental Actions in the same focus area.

NOTE: Participants can earn ribbons in any order. For example, a White Ribbon is not required in order to qualify for a Red Ribbon. However, most participants find it helpful to progress through the ribbons in order from White to Red to Blue
