Green Communities

About Green Communities

IACT launched the Green Communities Initiative in 2008 for the collective purposes of improving awareness about green options and how to implement them, promoting municipal efforts through a peer recognition/awards program, and awarding the most aggressive green programs

Cities and Towns interested in receiving the Green Community designation and considered for the Green Community of the Year Awards must complete a 51-question survey in the areas of purchasing, operations, measuring success, and sample projects. While the questionnaire is extensive, the Green Community designation is fantastic recognition for the many Hoosier communities who are working hard to operate using more sustainable, environmentally friendly practices.    

Green Communities and Award winners are recognized at IACT's Annual Conference and Exhibition.
