One Montgomery Green (OMG) fosters partnerships to support environmental sustainability and promote the development of a green economy. OMG acts as a catalyst for environmental responsibility among businesses, residents and government to improve the quality of life for all of Montgomery County. We do this by:
- Modeling and promoting sustainability in our county;
- Educating citizens and the business community about new sustainable initiatives from all sectors of society as well as government programs;
- Documenting and measuring the county’s progress in greening the economy;
- Sponsoring and supporting sustainable initiatives that will support a green economy.
One of the initial exciting new projects is a mapping effort. OMG will map green assets that already exist and identify new and under-served opportunities to develop green solutions. OMG has begun to identify sustainable and green-oriented companies, other organizations countywide and resources in specific sectors with an emphasis on Silver Spring and Wheaton.
