Launched in March 2011 as an additional effort to sustain our community’s resources, the Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program was put in place to help organizations learn and implement best practices in the area of environmental stewardship. The program is supported by the County and City Mayors and led by business and government leaders who make up the Steering Committee. The idea for the CMCGCP originated from a Leadership Clarksville study group and is based on successful environmental initiatives from ISO 14001 and Environmental Management Systems. A series of free workshops taught by environmental and other subject area specialists are included in the program which is an educational component of Montgomery County Bi-County Solid Waste Management.
