St. Louis Green Business Challenge
The St. Louis Green Business Challenge was launched in 2010 by the St. Louis Regional Chamber of Commerce working with the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Garden continues to deliver the program today with the Chamber's continued support as a sponsor. 

The Challenge delivers "triple-bottom" line results (financial, social, and environmental) to businesses of all types and sizes across the St. Louis region.
 The Challenge supports integration of sustainability measures into the kinds of everyday operational practices common to every business.  Participants identify and adapt the strategies that improve financial performance and engage employees in voluntary measures to reduce environmental impacts.

To date, 194 companies representing more than 150,000 employees have "taken the Challenge." Ongoing evolution of program tools and services meet the needs of long time as long as new participants, contributing to a strong continuity in the professional network the Challenge has established. We are proud that over 40% of companies have participated in the Challenge for three or more years, with 13 companies engaged through all eight program years.
