Green Business Program

Over the past year, Creve Coeur has been developing a Green Business Program to educate, train and encourage businesses in recycling and waste reduction practices. Green is a 21st century business strategy, and consumers demand products and services that show commitment to a sustainable environment. The Green Business Program also supports the City’s efforts to be an environmental leader and a preferred place to live and work in the St. Louis region.
 
Creve Coeur’s Green Business Program makes it possible for local businesses to respond to consumer demand for environmentally responsible products and practices. While making green choices may have been cost-inhibitive in the past, our program offers free and customizable training based on the needs of the business. 

Green Business Program Areas of Focus: (1) Recycling Training, (2) Connects Businesses with Sustaina
 

By incorporating recycling and waste reduction strategies, businesses can become a part of the growing green economy while discovering potential cost savings. Regardless of where you’re at in the process, our Business Sustainability Coordinator will develop a simple and customized plan that includes: bin and dumpster set up, educational signage, and employee and staff training. 
 

Green Business Guide


We also provide sustainability consulting to match your business needs with local sustainability providers. Our Green Business Guide highlights resources specific to the St. Louis region such as energy efficiency rebates and can give you an idea of the variety of ways your business can incorporate environmentally friendly practices.
 

Green Business Certification


As a part of our Green Business Program, we offer a Green Business Certification, which recognizes and promotes local businesses making meaningful efforts to reduce their environmental impacts. Certified businesses will receive a complimentary storefront window decal, showing customers their efforts to operate in an environmentally and socially conscious way. Certified businesses will be promoted in Creve Coeur channels such as the website and newsletter and be eligible for other benefits, such as the Green Business Award.
