Bethesda Green works to address environmental challenges locally by creating a sustainable, green community, built collaboratively through citizen engagement, environmental education, government partnership and innovative business development. We do so through our Innovation Lab, which works to cultivate innovative “eco-entrepreneurs” and incubate green business development to ensure compatibility between economic development and environmental protection. We also advise existing local businesses through B-Corps certification on best practices for sound governance, support for workers, and sustainability. We build a green urban ecosystem through our Be Green Living program that works to elevate community engagement and engage in programs that address environmental challenges through projects that enhance the quality of life for local residents. Part of this community-driven work includes an Environmental Leaders program to support environmental education, cultivating the next generation of visionary green leaders.
