CMC Green Certification Program


Montgomery County and the City of Clarksville are proud to announce the Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program.

Launched in March 2011, the Green Certification Program is designed to help businesses learn and implement best practices in the area of environmental stewardship in an effort to sustain our community’s resources through a series of free workshops taught by environmental and other subject area specialists. The idea for the CMCGCP originated from a Leadership Clarksville study group and is based on successful environmental initiatives that have originated globally. The program is an educational component of Montgomery County Bi-County Solid Waste Management.
