Businesses in Montgomery County, Maryland can now receive a certification for going green.
Recycling and energy reduction are two of the criteria. Water conservation and carbon footprint reduction are the others.
The new certification program will put Montgomery County at the forefront of environmental protection, according to county executive Isiah Leggett. Classes are offered at Montgomery College to show businesses how to make the changes needed to achieve the certification.
