Sustainable Maryland Certified
Sustainable Maryland Certified (SMC) is an initiative of the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland (EFC) designed to support Maryland’s 157 municipalities as they look for cost-effective and strategic ways to protect their natural assets and revitalize their communities. Using best practices in resource areas like water, energy, planning, health, food, and economy, a municipality can earn points toward sustainability certification.
Eighty-six (86) organizations lent the time and talent of their staff to participate on SMC’s task forces. Please click here to view a list of SMC Partners.
