Green Business Challenge


Sensible solutions for your business and our community

Now is the perfect time to start the GBC. This year runs from July1, 2014 – June 30, 2015.  Participants may start at any time during the year, but the sooner you start the more points you can earn.

The goal of the GBC is to serve as a tool for local businesses to quantify the impacts of their operations in the following areas:

  • Energy Consumption
  • Water Usage
  • Waste Generation
  • Green and Local Purchasing
  • Healthiness of the Workplace 

Once participants establish their individual performance scores using our GBC scorecard, they can pick and choose where they would like to make improvements. At the end of the challenge year, updated scores will be documented and participants can see how and where their efforts made the biggest impacts.

The GBC is a free program for workplaces in the Charleston metro area.  Thanks to our partners for their support!
