The Green Business Certification Program is a voluntary program designed to help businesses take basic green measures to reduce their ecological footprint, reduce their energy and resource use, and save money in the process.  Businesses are also eligible for Water Stewardship Blue Certification.

In the fall of 2007, Montgomery County Commissioners convened a forum of local citizens, government and business leaders to identify strategies to reduce the carbon footprint in Montgomery County and the region.  From the initial meetings, the name Dayton Regional Green 3 Task Force and the DRG3 label were developed in an effort to open the Task Force’s efforts to include all of the Dayton Region and not limit it to Montgomery County.DGR3 has three main areas of focus:  Residential, Business, and Government, with an emphasis on economic development, policy, and education.  To learn more, visit:  http://www.mcohio.org and click on the DRG3 logo.
