Minneapolis Green Business Certification

Now the Green Business League is certifying and consulting businesses all throughout Minneapolis and Minnesota. We are helping Minneapolis "Go Green" one business at a time.

Minneapolis Green Business Facts:

 
Green MinneapolisThe Mill Quarter regional facility in Minneapolis, MI that treats stormwater runoff in the area of the new Guthrie Theater. This underground treatment facility is expected to remove more than 20,000 pounds of suspended solids and 33 pounds of phosphorus annually.
 
Sustainable MinneapolisCreated rain gardens at six schools in partnership with the Minneapolis Public Schools. Rain gardens are one of the ways that we protect our waterways since they allow water to soak into the ground rather than running into our storm sewers and eventually our lakes and streams.
 
Eco MinneapolisUsed porous pavement in two road projects to reduce surface water runoff. This material allows water to pass through it into underground rock filter, which diminishes the amount of water and pollution runoff into lakes and rivers.
 
Going Green MinneapolisInstalled three solar energy projects at our City public works facilities. Last year, those three projects generated 12,500 kilowatt hours of energy, saved $1,250 on our electricity bill, and reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 21,400 pounds.
