Businesses and DEP staff networking at a green business forum event.


The intent of the Green Business Certification Program is to help Montgomery County businesses catalyze and prosper in a new green economy.  The program seeks to spur innovation and environmental stewardship so that forward-looking businesses that embed issues of sustainability into their day to day operations and supply chain decisions are not only rewarded for their environmental leadership, but spark the adoption of broader sustainable best practices throughout the County. 


The mission of the Green Business Certification Program is to:

  • Empower businesses to green their operations through the provision of tools, incentives, inspirational ideas, collaboration, and leadership opportunities.
  • Encourage local consumers and other businesses to consider Certified Green Businesses when making purchasing decisions.
