Gold Leaders are those companies with a fully operational, facility-specific Environmental Management System (EMS). They must meet beyond-compliance requirements and have no serious violations in three years, or five years for criminal offenses. Companies may renew their membership after three years.
Silver Partners are those companies seeking Gold Level membership, but don't yet have a fully implemented Environmental Management System (EMS). They haven't had any serious violations for one year, or criminal for two years. They have committed to develop an EMS with milestones that must be met each year.
