Year to Go Green Declaration

On January 5th, the Morgantown City Council declared 2016 the Year to Go Green.ytgg_official_logo

Over the next year, as a part of this declaration, Friends of Deckers Creek and the Morgantown Green Team are creating a Green Business Coalition. Our goal is to reach out to Morgantown businesses to demonstrate that going green can actually save businesses money.

Debunking misconceptions

Sustainability does not have to be expensive. Through the reduction of energy usage, the elimination of waste, and the advantage of tax incentives, businesses can go green and save green.

Opening dialogue about sustainability

By establishing a sustainable business coalition, we aim to open discussion with businesses to determine their current level of sustainability. Any business interested in increasing sustainability can join for free, regardless of current sustainability level.

Benefits to Members

In order to join, you only have to fill out a checklist online at the link below that will take around one hour. Your answers to the checklist will remain completely anonymous. The purpose will be to get baseline data of overall levels of sustainability in Morgantown. In years to come, our goal is to create a Green Certification Program.img_0510

As an incentive to those that fill out the checklist, we aim to provide the following incentives:

  • Free, positive publicity to the Morgantown community
  • Recommendations on how to save money while going green
  • A Shop at Green Businesses Day in the Fall
  • Over a 75% discount off of Energy Assessments offered by the Industrial Assessment Center
  • Access to the resources and experts in going green
  • A voice in the Morgantown sustainability community
