Free energy assessments. By local students. For small businesses.

Green Impact Campaign (GIC) is a DC-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that is bringing student volunteers and small businesses together to mitigate climate change. We provide students across the country with cloud-based tools and training to go out and conduct free energy assessments for local, small businesses in their community. Student volunteers receive professional skills through hands-on experience for future careers as climate changemakers. In the process, small businesses receive the custom, actionable information they need to make their business more energy efficient, profitable, and environmentally sustainable.

Our Mission

To better equip the next generation of climate leaders while reducing the environmental impact of small businesses.

Goal #1

Provide student volunteers with hands-on, real-world experience to gain professional skills relevant to climate jobs.


Goal #2

Provide small businesses with custom, actionable information to improve their sustainability and profitability.


Goal #3

Provide local communities with greener, cleaner, healthier places to live, work, and play.

Get Involved: Students & Volunteers

If you’re looking to help the environment, your resume, and a small business – all with one project, then sign up to join now. We’ll provide you with the GIC Volunteer Toolkit and full access to the cloud-based energy assessment tool, GEMS, to assess a local organization’s energy usage and make recommendations on how it can reduce utility costs and consumption. This isn’t a classroom discussion, this is real-world, hands-on experience that makes an impact.

Get Involved: Local Businesses

Green Impact Campaign is your chance to learn about actionable ways to make your business more sustainable and profitable while supporting local student volunteers. And it’s all completely free. With the average business discovering 25% in energy savings and the energy assessment only taking 20 minutes to complete, it’s the best investment you’ll make this year for your business and the planet.
