Denver has been offering sustainability consultations to businesses for 10 years and is now sharing what it considers success stories.

As Certifiably Green Denver turns 10 this week, it is honoring the 316 businesses that have met its green goals, says a Sept. 3 news release.

The program has advised 2,000 businesses and organizations on how to save on water, energy, waste and transportation.

Each year, the 316 businesses save 28.5 million kilowatt hours of energy and 6.3 million gallons of water, according to the release.

"By reducing waste and taking steps toward being more sustainable, you can save on your utility bills, improve your space's function and comfort, and better engage your employees and customers," the program's website states.
