Ann Arbor Introduces Inaugural Green Business Challenge

Ann Arbor Launches Green Business Challenge to Achieve Carbon Neutrality by 2030

The Green Business Challenge, a pilot project aimed at assisting local businesses in implementing sustainable changes to their practices, has been introduced by the City of Ann Arbor. This initiative is an essential step towards achieving Ann Arbor’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2030. Missy Stults, the director of Ann Arbor’s Office of Sustainability and Innovation, highlighted the importance of businesses in fostering collaboration, innovation, advancement, and promoting sustainability values.

The challenge is open to businesses willing to participate and earn points by completing various tasks such as installing compost and recycling bins or committing to a zero-waste pledge. The aim is to have 20-30 businesses involved in the initial phase to help shape, refine, and test the program. Once fully developed by the end of the year, the program hopes to expand participation to 50-100 businesses.

The Green Business Challenge is coordinated by Stults’ office in collaboration with Ann Arbor SPARK with financial support from donors and community members.
