Get Green Columbus
Recognizing the role a healthy environment plays in creating a city in which people want to live, work and raise a family, the City of Columbus established the Get Green Columbus initiative. Funded in part by a grant from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO), the Office of Environmental Stewardship manages the initiative focusing internally on city operations as well as externally partnering with stakeholders from throughout the community.
To assist in guiding the efforts of the Office of Environmental Stewardship, the city convenes an advisory group of city staff and community, business and environmental experts known as the Columbus Green Team. The group meets every other month and is further supported by working groups with a focus on: Transportation; Growth and Development; Education and Engagement; Energy; Business; Greenspace and Green Building.
