City of Creve Coeur, Missouri – Green Business Program

The Green Business Program in Creve Coeur, Missouri, makes it possible for local businesses to respond to consumer demand for environmentally responsible products and practices. Although making green choices may have been cost-inhibitive in the past, our program offers free and customizable training based on the needs of the business.


The Green Business Program offers free:
  • Sustainability assessments
  • Waste audits
  • Recycling training (bin and dumpster set up, educational signage and employee and staff training)
  • Green Team startup
  • Access to free and low-cost sustainability resources
  • Assistance in becoming Green Business Certified
By incorporating recycling and waste reduction strategies, businesses can become a part of the growing green economy while discovering potential cost savings. Additionally, we will assist you in developing the best marketing strategy to share your sustainability efforts with your customers and clients.


We also provide sustainability consulting to match your business needs with local sustainability providers. Our Green Business Guide highlights resources specific to the St. Louis region, such as energy efficiency rebates and can give you an idea of the variety of ways your business can incorporate environmentally friendly practices.


As a part of our Green Business Program, we offer a Green Business Certification, which recognizes and promotes local businesses making meaningful efforts to reduce their environmental impacts. Certified businesses will receive a complimentary storefront window decal, showing customers their efforts to operate in an environmentally and socially conscious way. Certified businesses will be promoted through Creve Coeur channels, such as the resident and business newsletters, the city website and at events like the Farmers Market and Arbor Day Celebration. Certified businesses are also eligible for other benefits, such as the Green Business Award.


Contact Creve Coeur’s Business Sustainability Coordinator to get started with the Green Business Program. The Business Sustainability Coordinator will schedule a meeting to go over your current sustainability practices and create a simple, customized plan that will work for your business to incorporate environmentally friendly practices.
