Whether you’re an established business or just getting started, the Austin Green Business Leaders program can help you protect the environment, save money, and make Austin a more livable place.

Become an Austin Green Business Leader

Green Business is Good Business — Especially in Austin!

Addressing the climate crisis and protecting our environment is critically important, and businesses have a significant role to play. The Austin Green Business Leaders Program wants to help your business get recognized for doing good work in our community. 


Join the program in just a few easy steps.

1. Work with our team to complete an Austin Green Business Leader Scorecard.

Completing the scorecard is your first step towards identifying all of the incredible green practices you're already doing — and some ways you can deepen your support for the earth. You'll be able to work with our team throughout the process.

2. Give us a tour.

Once you've completed your scorecard, a member of our team will join you at your location to review it together. You'll get the chance to ask any questions you have and learn more about our office, while we learn more about you and meet your team!


3. Determine your score.

After the tour, your final score will be tallied to determine your business’ Austin Green Business Leader level.


4. Be recognized!

All Austin Green Business Leaders will get a decal for display at your business, access to networking events with other green businesses, and eligibility for inclusion in the Austin Green Business Directory.
