From Harford County government:
The Maryland Green Registry is a voluntary, self-certification program through the Maryland Department of the Environment to showcase an organization’s commitment to achieving a more sustainable Maryland.
The Registry is free and open to all organizations and facilities in Maryland. To participate, an organization must submit an application demonstrating accomplishments in at least five environmental practices such as management and leadership, energy, waste and transportation. Harford County Government’s application was submitted by the Green Team and was accepted this April. Currently, there are over 170 organizations on the registry, but Harford County Government is the first entire local government entity included on the registry.
All of the Maryland Green Registry information, including the County’s profile, is available online at the website http://www.mde.maryland.gov/MarylandGreen/default.htm. Scott Kearby, Dan Pazdersky, Richard Carr and Mark Degen of the Green Team’s goal setting and action plan subcommittee led the application process for Harford County Government. Additionally, county employees contributed to the County’s environmental stewardship initiatives.
