The City's Department of Neighborhood & Environmental Programs has created an Environmental Stewardship program for area businesses and households. Currently the program extends to households, restaurants, lodging, retail stores, office buildings, schools and places of worship, and automotive establishments.
Certified businesses will receive a certificate and window stickers to show their commitment to the environment. They will also receive recognition on the MainStreets Annapolis Partnership and Annapolis and Anne Arundel County Conference and Visitor’s Bureau web sites. Both are sponsors of the program.
See the current list of certified Environmental Stewards! Help support local businesses that have taken the extra effort to go green.
If you would like to certify your business, download the appropriate workbook below and follow the enclosed directions.
After a business submits their application to the Department of Neighborhood and Environmental Programs, they must meet with staff prior to being awarded certification. This gives DNEP staff an opportunity to suggest additional improvements.
Free technical assistance and resource referrals are a key part of the program. This free voluntary certification program is part of the City’s Sustainable Annapolis initiative. For more information contact Jeanna Beard, Environmental Program Coordinator at 410-263-7946.
