Smart, Green & Growing partners are organizations that are helping create a more sustainable future for our state by promoting SGG programs, services and tools to their members, customers and constituents, adopting sustainable practices and sharing their own innovative ideas and successes.
SGG partners are not subject to any certification, are not required to adopt environmental practices and are not endorsed by the State of Maryland.
Businesses and organizations that have implemented at least five environmental practices with at least one quantitative result are encouraged to join the Maryland Green Registry, a voluntary program that offers tips and resources, technical assistance, an annual awards program, and a forum for sharing innovative practices.
