Green Business Resources

Miami-Dade County is helping businesses go above and beyond basic green measures. For example, to assist businesses interested in making their operations more sustainable, the County has available a series of checklists and resource guides to help with the energy, water and waste-reduction goals for your business.

Green Business Resource Guides

  • Use this self-evaluation Green Business Checklist  to assess your business practices and calculate a green rating score based on best management practices for business sustainability.
  • Conserve energy  by using fluorescent lighting and Energy Star-rated equipment.
  • Conserve water through the use of low-flow toilets and water flow restrictors. Energy is needed to deliver water, so every unit of water conserved saves several pounds of CO2.
  • Reduce waste by recycling, composting and using materials with recycled content. The manufacture, distribution and use of products – as well as dealing with the resulting waste – all require the use of energy, resulting in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Take steps to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for their employees and customers by using less-toxic products .
