Green Business Leadership Program

For Springfield Area Businesses, Organizations & People

Welcome to the Springfield Area Green Business Leadership Program ! This is a recognition program that encourages area businesses, institutions and organizations to integrate environmentally sustainable practices throughout their facilities, operations, culture and products.
