Atlanta Green Business Certification

Despite a bad rep for traffic congestion and water shortages, Atlanta is full of eco-friendly places.  The Green Business League and our consultants in the area have been working hard through the years to make Atlanta a green city and we still have a lot of work ahead of us.

Atlanta Green Business Facts:

 
Green AtlantaThe Emory Conference Center Hotel is, as its name might suggest, both a place to stay and a place to hold your business meetings. Styled in the vein of mid-century modern architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the hotel has earned Green Seal certification, implements an extensive recycling system (everything from light bulbs to tennis shoes), and makes a concerted effort to refurbish rather than buy new.
 
Sustainable AtlantaMost big U.S. cities have the prerequisite celebrity-owned restaurant -- but most of these are not like Watershed Restaurant. Partially owned by Indigo Girl Emily Sailers and housed in a converted gas station, Watershed boasts lunch and dinner options cooked up from local and organic ingredients.
 
Eco AtlantaWhile you are taking in the lions and tigers and bears (oh my) at Zoo Atlanta, you can recycle the materials you use, such as your visitor's guide. The zoo recently kicked off the "Think Green" campaign to help both zoo visitors and employees consider their environmental impact. Plus, before you toss that cell phone, ask about the zoo's take-back program, which disposes of items that can't be picked up curbside.
 
Green Businesses in AtlantaAvoid the famed Atlanta congestion with MARTA, the city's public transportation service. Groups and conventions should check out MARTA's visitor pass, which offers unlimited rides around town via rail and bus for less than the cost of a taxi from the airport to your hotel.
 
Going Green in AtlantaEvery Saturday between 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., early May through early December, Piedmont Park hosts a Green Market: Here you can stock up on locally produced food -- including fresh seasonal produce -- and local crafts. The park, only two miles from downtown Atlanta, also serves as a great place to wind down with its miles of walking and jogging paths.
 
Green Facts about AtlantaA hybrid SUV can't trump public transit when it comes to going green, but if it's a chauffeured ride you require, Atlanta's Elite Green Car is the way to go. Lexus RX400 hybrids lug you (and hopefully two or more of your carpooling co-workers) around the city in a vehicle cleaner than most taxis.
