What is MPower?

MPower is a one-year, fully customizable program for businesses and organizations that want to reduce their environmental impact while saving costs and creating a healthier and more engaging workplace and community.

The MPower Champions Program is developed to engage, inspire, and network businesses working towards sustainability in the 7 Rivers Region of southwestern Wisconsin. The program focuses on helping businesses reach specific goals. Over the period of one year, the MPower Champions Program moves businesses from intention to implementation; reducing their use of energy, water, transportation and waste through completed projects they choose.  These projects ultimately save them money and/or increase engagement internally and often externally as well.
