City of Houston Challenges Businesses to Make Houston a Greener Place to Live

Green ChallengeCalling all commercial property managers and office tenants! Mayor Annise Parker is challenging management districts, commercial property owners, property managers and office tenants to participate in improving the environmental and economic performance of their business operations through the Houston Green Office Challenge. 

The challenge encourages businesses to make Houston a greener place to live and work by reducing energy use, waste and water use.  As a result, participants reach the goal of environmental sustainability and, in some cases, third-party green building certification through the ENERGY STAR and LEED™ rating systems.

On Wednesday, September 14 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., the Houston Green Office Challenge will host a Sustainable Transportation workshop at the Kendall Neighborhood Library & Community Center located at 609 N. Eldridge Parkway.  The free informational event will offer presentations and displays by METRO, Houston Tomorrow, NRG Vehicles, Westchase District and the Energy Corridor District – all to help you make better choices for the environment.

Lunch will be provided so be sure to RSVP no later than Friday, September 9 to kwallace@energycorridor.org.
