Growing to Serve You Better

The City of Columbia recently joined Lexington and Richland counties to create a new and more inclusive green business program: Midlands Green Business. 

Midlands Green Business members receive:

  • Access to sustainable mentors
  • Green Business workshops and networking events
  • Green Business promotional opportunities
  • Listing and link on Midlands Green Business website
  • Membership seal for office or building
It's easy for your business or workplace to be recognized as a Midlands Green Business!
  1. Begin by establishing a workplace "Green Team." It can be a group of people or it can just be one person. 
  2. Complete online membership application.
  3. Check off your business' current sustainability measures.
  4. Highlight at least one sustainability measure that your office would like to implement in the coming year.  (Refer to Green Business Help Sheets for ideas.)
  5. Upon approval, participants will be notified, and the appropriate entity will be in touch with you.
