Every day, Maryland Green Registry members are actively conserving energy, water, and material usage -- actions that reduce operating costs and environmental impacts, including the production of greenhouse gases.
The Maryland Climate Champion Challenge asked members to share at least five of the climate-friendly practices they have in place. The participating organizations, listed below, were entered into a prize drawing at the annual Maryland Green Registry Leadership Awards event on June 28, 2018. The prize drawing winners were Straughan Environmental, Howard Community College, Towson University, Pinnacle Communications, MOM’s Organic Markets, Frederick County Government, AstraZeneca MedImmune, and Washington Gas.
The Climate Challenge may be over, but Maryland Green Registry members are still encouraged to take advantage of the costs savings and other benefits of implementing climate-friendly practices. Read more below.
gas emissions inventory is a way to identify, quantify and manage emission
sources. The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is
the most widely used by businesses and government.
organizations may want to use tools such as this carbon footprint calculator to identify sources, emissions, and specific measures relevant to
their business type and size.
Specific goals can be in the form of percentage reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by a certain date measured from a baseline year, or science-based targets that relate to your business sector and size.
